Acratech GPss + nodal slide: does it still need a leveling base?

I am not very much into these do-it-all pieces of gear but being in a new ball head GAS I am so very much bent onto the Acratech GPss and since I'd like to experiment some stitching I am also looking at a nodal slide but wondering how necessary would a leveling plate be if I get the Acratech which is supposed to behave like such a base if switched upside down.

Also, a nodal slide to be used within a range from 20 to 85mm, what should I be aware of into picking one?

Grazie
