As far as I know, the data should be sampled at the edge of the clock no
matter it's differential or single end. If you have a fixed but asymmetrical
duty cycle, you will still make your circuit work as long as the setup/hold
margin is positive. If you have a varying duty cycle, it will become jitter and
you will have more to worry about.
So far I don't have experience on double (or quad) data rate, but my feeling
is an asymmetrical duty cycle will do you harm in those cases.
