Having that opening for the bottom won't hurt anything, and won't change it's performance as far as I know.
Now, using the Overcover with the zip models can be somewhat problematical from what I've gathered. There's no "approved" method for attaching one and still being able to enter/exit the hammock via the side zipper. But, there have been many good suggested workarounds that might suit your needs when/if you get to that point.
When I used my supershelter this year I had no problems using the top cover with my side zip. it's a matter if lifting it up a little bit and getting in. I did switch to an under quilt, but really liked the SS. It did exactly what I needed it to do with no problems.
