1. Increasing /decreasing riser length has no effect on the recovery arc of a given canopy as the planform and trim will remain unchanged.

I still disagree with this, as line length is used by canopy designers to affect the recovery arc of a canopy.
I completely disagree too, I recently changed from 19" to 22", and the difference is recovery arc is clear. I suppose the impact must be different on different canopy, though... I guess the transition between short to long risers must be more noticeable than long to very long too....
