Should size of the book information bars be changed?

One of the most debated issues is the presence and the actual size of the information bars at the top and bottom of the screen in reading mode.
The top bar displays the book title of the opened book, while the bottom bar displays the current page and total number of pages of the chapter (kepub) or book (epub). And therefore require no user input.

This is about the header and footer in reading mode and must not be confused with the header and footer that are displayed in menu mode to adjust reading preferences or to navigate through a book.

What is you opinion? Vote!

For illustrational purposes only: a mock up of reduced top and bottom bars, where
  • the displayed text size is identical to the current implemented size.
  • the surrounding margins are reduced to the same height of the text size
