definitely correct .. speaking of my own experience it's not just 
keeping the data without the .prj files ..
I've also seen a lot of companys (including governments) sending shape 
files just as the ".shp"
And i always wonder how ArcGIS is the job of correctly open the files .. 
but thats another story ..

still hope that raster reprojection on the fly will work soon!
good luck and many thanks to radim for doing that job!!
