+1 - I think people generally say that because they are cloudy anyway, so there is no need to clear them. I think that amount of sediment has more to do with the care you take in siphoning than whether you clear it. In the secondary, there is still going to be sediment at the bottom which you will need to avoid stirring up when bottling if you want it clear.
It should not effect the taste of your beer, unless you move it too early.
