Good point. I wouldn't say it would increase the risk of a flip unless you have a huge amount of space that allows the cooler to actually completely change it center of gravity from side-to-side.
That being said, this is another excellent reason to ensure that it is braced properly and doesn't shift.
Another risk could also be that a shift of the cooler could allow it to work it's way out of it's strapping - not causing a flip, but initiating a chase of said cooler if and when you do have a flip
