Well, I can't say if you need headers, and you certainly shouldn't use them in general. If the plugin needs headers then it needs to document that it does, but it shouldn't need them in general, so that would be a bug.

Setting the other value off simply isn't going to do anything. If it does, you have other settings in other places overriding the default value, and that matters a great deal. That's just a time bomb waiting to go off.
