The point of changing the rollers (for most) is to get the engine rpm into the peak torque/horsepower range. If the pullys are desgned to operate (open and close) at a certian rpm, or within certian perimeters, significantly changing the speed of that operation effects the torque transferred to the rest of the transmission/wheel.

They would just hold it in a lower gear longer.
and at the same time getting you in a higher gear faster.
