Nope, but it's kinda nice to have the latest OF version around in case you need or want it for itself. For example, some people in the UK/EU might like the FM radio RDS info. feature in the new OF version (I don't recall if Rockbox has that feature). And the microSD card bug fix is nice to have, especially, in case you ever need to use the OF.
But I'm not sure how the new OF version would "mix" with Rockbox installed using an earlier version--I'm sure others will know and answer if one can mix OF versions between the OF and a Rockbox install.
