Even if you do, you still don't want to have the potential for a collision of hard parts... A perfect fork should be able to use all of the available travel when subjected to the most extreme force it'll take- and you never know when you're going to come across that one massive chuckhole or obstacle in the road that'll compress them harder than you ever thought would happen. More a precaution than anything else.

How tough are the bits that are colliding? I had a bit of a clash for a while with the GSXR750 forks but with an old M series GSXR mudguard, on big hits (going fast over speedbumps) the mudguard got clattered off the underside of the fairing. The mudguard was very flexible though, so it never worried me- just meant it had a series of dents in the top ::)
