Whats the point in handlebar rise?

I fancy going wider (750mm to 780mm), otherwise the set up on my bikes pretty much spot on. Just wondering if the rise in a handlebar only affects the overall height of the grips? Does it affect anything else in terms of control?

For reference I've got a bar with 12mm of rise, would going up to say 20mm of rise just mean removing one of the 10mm spacers from the stack..
