... is it worth the hassle taking these off and switching bindings (i'm told i can't mount the rental bindings without the adjustment plate), so as to optimize their off-piste performance?

... contrary of what some believe, risers don't add "quickness" to the ski. As a matter of fact, the knee has to move a greater distance laterally (in relation to the ski) with a riser than without to get the same response. Risers do allow for greater precision and the biggest benefit is edge leverage.
