We use all different parts of the D chord position in this arrangement. You may chose to play some of the notes up the neck in your arrangment, not only because it may be more convenient to accommodate the bass notes or other melody notes, but also because there is a different sound when notes are played on different strings. You can get a brighter sound down in first position, and a warmer sound and sweeter vibrato further up the neck.
