Your suggestion is akin to removing the visual feedback on widgets.
After all, when you click on a button you are in front of the screen and
you know where you clicked, why bother with a visual feedback ?

The 'selected in PRIMAY' has been deeply entrenched in the X11 culture
for years. If the only selling point for removing it is "in most cases
it won't hurt", then the cause is lost.
