If it doesn't leak ignore it. The other side has about a foot buried inside the gearbox and is supported differently.

I have just removed this drive shaft to change a leaking Oil seal, I also noticed a fair amount of play at the gearbox interface.

While I was battling with a 8cm diameter (5cm inner diameter) Oil seal I wondered why Toyota had chosen to make it so large (and difficult to fit). With hindsight I wonder if the larger diameters are a design feature to cope with the movement/play, as the seal diameters on the other side are much smaller.
