Question of the necessity of rebaseall

Imagebase in PE header is something a bit of optional, that means if two 
dlls with same imagebase, the OS kernel will automaticly relocate one of 
them, to put them in different virtual spaces. So, rebase should be a 
utility for optimizing the overall start-up speed, to reduce avoidable 
relocations, rather then fix start-up errors.

Any idea?
