Well, it might be necessary at some point when the caps go bad enough. I had an A600 with an intact seal that I broke half a year ago. It had a bad case of cap leakage which had eaten its way through vias etc., so it wouldn't boot anymore. It might not be the best choice to wait until it stops working to open it up as it might run fine for several years after the caps start leaking, giving it plenty of time to destroy the copper.
