Yes, although you can get away without doing so when reindexing from
scratch, assuming there are no duplicates in an indexing run.

Someone recently benchmarked (the discussion was on this mailing list),
and there's a significant overhead to checking the uid term.  It's
something I'm intending to look into, but I don't have a lot of spare
time at the moment...
