Indeed, it isn't alway necessary or even beneficial to totally correct for keystoning. It is rather easy in most stitchers to try out several different degrees of correction for the output. It usually requires nothing more than placing the horizon or vanishing point at a different vertical position ("pitch"), and generating a new preview or output file. It also depends on the chosen projection method, some don't produce straight lines anyway.

Especially a close up of tall buildings with a rectilinear projection can sometimes benefit from placing the assumed horizon a bit above the actual one.
