No, it is not necessary. In general, it is not good practice to keep any
transaction active for any longer than it needs to complete its work.
However, you have a special case that you have researched and tested
thoroughly, so stick with what you have found to work.

You have already tapped into the best authorities on this subject, so
nothing I say should dissuade you.
