I'm always in favor of balance for several reasons.

I remember that Mickey Thompson (remember him?) first became famous for precision machining and balancing.

Years ago I had to replace a piston in my VW bus which was several grams different from the original.  I had to machine some material out of the wrist pin to get it close to balance and the rest was polishing the piston.  Ended up about 0.1 gram difference.  Ended up very smooth, well running engine.
