Formatting SD cards after transfer still necessary?

Hi,

It has been a best practice to format memory cards in the camera after transfering pictures. With current model Canon SLRs(T4i,etc.), is there any objective reason for this, or is it just as fine to delete transferred files on the card and go back to taking more pictures. I'd try to look into this myth-buster style.

Thanks,
Alex
