Layout and Structural Blocks

So going through the layout files, I can see how some will call out updates to the page layout—for example, the customer login page utilizing the 1column layout, and having calls to remove the left and right structural blocks. Can someone clarify if this is required or just good practice? It seems like it shouldn’t break anything if you don’t explicitly call out the <remove name="left" /> if the template doesn’t call out the getChildHtml(’left’) ... right? Thanks for any insight in advance.
