the brake levers hanging up on the back of the bag frame [12"top to bottom] as you steer the wheel, would not be such a safe situation,..
then perhaps you may gain back some of that height with a riser bar , but then strike the ground when the bar is folded down .
Eyeballing the graphics of the 4 bar types It appears the H bar riser at its top clamp is about the same height as the S Bar, But..
having the hinge (3+)3cm further up, .. when folding the bars down, there is a bit more clearance between the handlebar end and the ground,
if adopting a low riser MTB, instead of the flat (or M bar) with the H front part. (breathing in, )
And, You might like the bar sweep angle options too .

which is a rack to mount 2 panniers on the front Brompton block looks interesting too ..
