It's definately necessary, just don't assume that the collision point
of the ray is exactly where the camera should sit every frame. 
Without some sort of movement smoothing, your camera jumps all over
the place.

You also want it to lag a bit to handle bizarre see-through geometry. 
Imagine, for instance, the player standing with her back to a jail
cell.  As the ray pans across the bars, it sees very close!, very far,
very close!, very far... etc.  You need to make sure that jogging is
smoothed out.
