Like almost any feature, you can do without it if you want. You can skip auto ISO (why not change it manually), you can skip exposure automation (manual is fine), you can skip auto WB (I often do), you can skip auto bracketing (do it manually), longer exposure times (use your watch and the Bulb setting), ...keep going down the list. That doesn't mean those aren't helpful features at times. VR is the same. I've appreciated having VR in my 16-35mm when I was photographing the interior of dark cathedrals and tripods weren't allowed. I've also appreciated it when shooting street scenes at night where a tripod would have been very awkward to use. VR enabled me to use a lower ISO for better dynamic range and less noise and/or a smaller aperture for greater depth of field. However good your handholding technique is, VR improves it and expands the range in which you can shoot. That's not a bad thing in my opinion.
