There is no real need. However I would suggest to make it public 
during early development and change it to internal for final testing
and production.
Be careful about exposing pipelines, which are not meant for the end user.
You may reveal information, which is not meant to leave the house. Also 
it might be easier  to hack your server and your users may depend on
information, which you consider implementation details.

One a related question. Is there are easy way to temporary 
disable views, so you could get them back, if you need to
do some debugging?
