Rega P25 with no border

Hi, I'm running a rega p25 with a music man III and every other upgrade/tweak there is out there pretty much.
I just kinda have a stupid question..
What kind of impact will playing the table without the rosewood border have?
I mean does the border have any specific purpose?
I just started trying it out, things seem a little more seperated and cleaner...
Any thoughts, advice, or facts would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks for your time!
I found that there is a great improvement if I suspend the table by putting 3 Cardas blocks under the surround...1 in front and 2 in back or v/v.
