Can I use a blocked Lo-Pro Edge without the locking nuts?

I've blocked my Lo-Pro and I'd like to tune my guitar normally. I hate fine tuners. Is there a reason I should still use the locking nuts?
Btw, do I have to adjust the intonation when tuning to Eb from standard tuning?

yes, you can get rid of the locking nuts, ā la Paul Gilbert.
as for the intonation, i think you dont need to set it for an Eb tuning.

when tuning to Eb you don't need to reset the intonation.
