I would not like my /system to be touch. For the simple fact that I'd like to keep playing with it. By having extra space, there's a lot of flexibility to try things out.

Actually, I think there's no role of the EBR files. Just that the restore doesn't work well. A Factory clean-up should work. I see that now I have the resized storage. THANK YOU.

NO. Actually, it has a role to play. I think you need to select your choice from the APK and then use the EBR files for YOUR device. And then it works.

True what you say. I only asked since I saw what you accomplished and when I had a nexus one a dev managed to modify system, data and cache partitions. I do not think that type of thing may work here as the board partition architecture is completely different. Anyways it was just a question.
