They serve different purposes. "Dispatch" controls the message path. 
"Open" controls the state of the stack in the UI. There are many 
instances where you do not want the stack toplevel or even visible but 
you do want it to be in the message path.

Dispatch and "send" are similar. You would not expect a stack to 
toplevel itself every time you send a message to it.
