IMO the purpose of a thermostat is to keep coolant in the radiator long enough for it to dissipate the heat. I run a hotter thermostat and it keeps my engine cooler. If the upper o-ring was missing it could potentially rattle around and let coolant past before it has a chance to cool. It would be a restriction either way and probably wouldn't matter in the grand scheme of things.
