I think removing glue isn't really important until the buildup is so thick that you fear that it will come apart under tension or pressure. I don't know when that is. Has anyone ever had that happen?
The concern is that certain glues are chemically incompatible with other glues. It's difficult to know when this is the case, so it's safer to just remove it all when you are switching glues, as I am now. I have seen incompatibilities before, notably with Soyo glue.
