You need not to do so.  Yet it makes sense:

I always use "expert" names, regardless of whether the smallcaps are 
taken from an expert or an SC font.  Thus, I save the "non-expert" 
name for the case of installing the same font family without SC or 
expert fonts, perhaps faking the smallcaps.

This matters, for instance, in the case of Palatino, where pplrc8t 
is the faked smallcaps VF, distributed with PSNFSS,  whereas pplrc9e 
would use the real Palatino-SC font.
