    It can cause nothing, but it can be a problem, if something bounces up or down into that cover and get in between the belt and the crack gear, or a cam, it could break it.
    If it gives you piece of mind, i took my top timing belt cover off.
    Just hope nothing falls into it.
    It will also be exposed to the 'elements' more, and should probably be changed more often than recommended, actually go change it right now :p
