Is it that much of an advantage to narrow the trailers?

OTOH people talk about the hazard of one trailer wheel hitting an obstruction and flipping the trailer. Wouldn't leaving it wider make it more stable in roll, making for a lesser risk of that peril?

Or will the argument be, it's not that much more stable if it's only 10% narrower. But then isn't it not that big an advantage to have it only 10% narrower? Which is it, significant or insignificant?
