If, for example, one believes that properly encoded MP3s still end up affecting high frequencies or channel separation, then one should definitely try to listen for these types of differences.
Also you may want to emphasize that if a FLAC file is used for an ABX comparison, it should be one the user created, since there are a large number of bogus FLACs floating around the net.
I have assumed that if one is extremely worried about sound quality, one would be willing to buy CDs and make FLACs from these CDs.
