It would be good to shift both members, otherwise the pitch lines of each will not intersect at contact. I think pitch lines that intersect (or might separate slightly under shaft deflection) give true involute tooth action, even when profile is shifted. I think this would maximize rolling action and minimize frictional contact.
Hopefully others will point out the error in this...
