Depends on your appetite for risk. I'm much happier with the screw there as a safety mechanism.
The mounting points for the bracket are all on the easel, so in the event the locking mechanism breaks/comes loose, it means the panel will be able to rotate on the hinges if the screw isn't in place. Now that probably doesn't matter in normal circumstances as gravity will do the trick unless you lean on the panel. I live in an area that's prone to earthquakes, so I don't want it bouncing up and down when they hit.
