Actually Nolan's batman gave that a true purpose - it was meant to be a symbol criminals feared and gave citizens hope. As evidenced by the bat signal and the kid drawing symbols in tdkr. That's why he wears it. It does have a function even if it doesn't physically help him be batman.
Regwec, those kinds of explanations do add credence to him having something in that area - but does not address the fact that it has to be a separate tone from the rest of his costume.
