Chain drop is not something that just happens. If you're riding on smoother surfaces (even gravel can be "smooth") a non-clutched RD shouldn't have too many problems. On the other hand, hit the bumpy stuff- cobblestones, washboards, lots of potholes- and do it at speed, and I'm confident your experience will be different once that RD cage starts slapping around. In fact in those situations, having a clutched RD on a 2x system is helpful in my experience...but, then again I live in a place where they make roads with stones set closely together and they are B-U-M-P-Y!
