There would be a difference to the yeast, but I am not sure it makes enough of a difference to worry about.  I wouldn't go above 1.040 though, I think it is just a waste of DME.  I make my starters with ~10% DME and 100% water, which should have SG around 1.037.  I should probably cut back to 8% DME.
wait that's 110% Tom, how do you manage that?  :o ;D
I make the starter with some amount of water (100%) and use 10% of the weight of the water for my DME weight.  I wrote it that way because the gravity is different if the DME is 10% of the water weight vs. 10% DME and 90% water.  Confusing I guess, but that's the way I do it.

There is no nut on that bone.  What are you talking about?  Am I missing something?  I don't get it.
