Hi Ben, It is safer to those steps every time you have to use a different Xcode version (with older LC versions), since if you don't that, you *might* see some unexpected (and completely non-descriptive) errors when building iOS standalones.
May I ask why you have to switch back to an older LC version? Is there a bug in the current newest LC version that prevents you from using it?
