Jane et al.,

The only counter-argument to leaving old tunics in place would be where 
there is danger of pests such as mealy bugs or diseases such as 
pathological rots that might be harbored in the old tunics.  Otherwise, I 
go with Arnold:  If nature leaves them, so can we.

As for actual data, no, I've never seen even a whiff of data on the subject.
