What's the point in using glazing points when the glazing compound will hold the window in just fine  until someone breaks it again?

The window won't move out of place while applying the compound. No one will know that there are no points under the compound, and if the window were to ever break again, it will break with or without glazing points. So, are the points really necessary? Why? All I see is another trip to the store and $3 expense.

    I believe that the points keep rattling down over the long runs, as the glazing seems to fail after a while.

    Compound dries up and falls out after awhile.

    Glazing compound breaks down, the points are a security measure.

    Compound eventually hardens, cracks and falls out.  The glazing points hold the pane securely at all times.  For three lousy bucks you're going to skip it?
