Default Should I eventually transfer into a secondary or not?

I brewed my first lambic-style yesterday and it currently has a decent one inch krausen on it. I've been doing some reading on lambic brewing and it seems unclear whether I should transfer to secondary after a month when the beer finishes what I'm calling the yeast stage or not. If I don't transfer, won't I have to worry about yeast autolysis?

You want yeast autolysis in a lambic to feed the bugs. If you transfer, transfer the trub in too.

from all Ive read you dont need a full yeast cake, but you do want quit a bit for the bugs too eat later.

In Flanders you do want to transfer off the yeast.

I've transferred all my lambics and carried over a bunch of trub for the long haul of 2+ years on the cake.
