3 points of control makes the uke more stable and less mobile compared to only 1 point of control. This interplay between creating stability and mobility in the uke -- or the illusions of these dynamics -- is an important part of studying both kata and organic movement, I think.

I disagree that multiple points of contact would/should make uke more stable. On the contrary, multiple points of contact should make creating instability in the opponent easier.
As long as the contact isnt just arbitrary.

Its all about control.
Its easier to control someone if your in an advantageous position with lots of contact points. Both by limiting his mobility and unbalancing him.
