How important is deburring?

I recently soldered a new shower body valve and made the live connections. I cleaned and fluxed the pipes and fittings, but I did not debur the cut pipes.

I have seen some people debur and others not. The new install does not leak and has not for about a week.

How important is deburring? Do I have to take everything down because I skipped this step?
