What are the specific advantages of the added water volume and footprint? I never thought of that.

The more water you have the more stable it is because it takes more to effect the larger body of water. The bigger footprint gives you a better chance to scape more naturally since you have more room to work with so tend to be more appealing to look at and also creates more territories for your fish to claim lowering any possible aggression.
