Since the toc is never needed (the ncx supplants a toc), would it make sense

Many publishers deliberately include an HTML TOC in their EPUB
documents. An HTML TOC can offer more nuanced layout and text than an
NCX TOC and is appropriate for some titles.
It sounds like it *can* be useful in some cases, but maybe shouldn't be the default.


I'm 50:50, could argue either way?
  How messy is it, in, say 3 different readers, to have the duplicate ToC?
Perhaps use that as the decider?
