I have trouble answering yes to that, because it seems less relevant and thus less potent in Rises' Gotham than it did in Begins' Gotham, and because it's frankly recycled. Bane effectively lacked his own boots and instead stood in those of Ra's.
I agree that in the end its a matter of personal opinion.

Absolutely. She's another one of the operators of the movie that represent another facet of the city , a view beyond the surface. That's Nolan's way of showing different aspects of the entire gotham spectrum . It adds to the texture he builds , the world outside the frame. He's quite ingenious writing these sort of mechanism.
