I do the same thing. Once I started doing this, I noticed a positive difference in the beers I started making. Less of that all-encompassing "homebrew" flavor. If you're really that anal about an extra few pints of beer, I guess throw it in. FWIW I personally wouldn't let that trub anywhere near my fermenting wort. My wort is nutrient-rich enough without having all that extra garbage contact my wort while fermenting. If nothing else it's just good piece of mind.
