How do you do?

It's not about what /you/ need.  The question is "Will it help a  
visitor?"  and the answer is a qualified "yes".  There are no significant  
reasons (that I can think of) to leave it out.  Of course this assumes  
index.htm is indeed your home page - have you considered: <link rel="home"

I've never seen a good explanation of why LINK tags should be used. I've
seen plenty of descriptions of what they *do*, but (apart from importing
a stylesheet), why do I need them? What are the benefits?

One that I have found to have definite benefit for Lynx uxers is one
that I include on my pages:

When Lynx users press '=' to get the page information then they will
see the mailto address as the page "owner".  Without the tag, they see
"owner: none".  More important, they can send me a comment about my page
by pressing 'c' for "comment" while viewing any part of the page and do
not have to search for a "mailto:" hyperlink.

It's too bad that more browsers don't support this.

From what I have read, some of the other <LINK...> tags can make
navigation much easier for the disabled. See "Day 9" of the "Dive Into
Accessibility" site: /
