OK, a reason not to.
The shim can allow the post to turn, even when extremely tight.
I found a nice seatpost shock for $10 (I thought a steal until I found out it had been recalled), my local shop told me a shim would cost a couple of bucks, then when it came in it was $8 (!), I took it home and tried it out, and just couldn't believe they didn't mention it before I bought it. Then when I took it back, he had to get approval in the back and I could hear them yelling from the back, "Why the _ did he have us special order _ in the first place? I can't _ing belive this _!" Then even though I paid in cash they would only give credit. Nice and professional, eh? They're supposed to be the pros, but no matter, us newbies can stick together...
...uh, was that too much detail?
