Do I really need a security policy?

Hi,
I saw some people using security policy which grants all permissions. I am just wondering if this is really necessary. Since if the application is running without a security manager, there is no requirement to establish permissions for that application. By default, the application has full access to all resources. Also, by default, an RMI program does not have a security manager installed, and no restrictions are placed on remotely loaded objects.
Did I miss something?

For the assignment I only used security on the client. Not really necessary, but just shows the assessor you understand how to use it, even though in our cases we grant all access.

Mark,
Thanks for your reply. So I suppose they won't take points off if I don't use security manager in my assignment, since there is no requirement in the documentation. If anyone knows it is not true, please advise. Thanks.
