Personally, I say no. A few people aparently found it to sometimes be necessary on a previous phone and are just more comfortable continuing to do it that way. I never have wiped more than once, and never had any problems.
Its just what you're more comfortable with in the end. It shouldnt hurt anything, so its not a wrong way, just unnecessary imo.
