Nikon 200-400mm NC filter and protective glass

For those of you that have this lens, do you keep the NC filter in the holder when using the lens ? Is it absolutely necessary to have a filter in the holder when the lens is used ? The manual seems to say it is but I was just wondering if some people used it without.

Also, did anybody notice any adverse IQ effects from using the protective glass in front of the lens ? I normally do not use filters (UV or protective) on my lenses so I initially thought about removing this but then the thought of potentially damaging the front element of such an expensive lens creeps up and makes me think It would be better to leave it on. Of course the manual recommends leaving it on at all times except when ghosting situations might occur.

Thanks.
