It isn't so much whether the report is accurate (or not accurate) but rather 
whether it is actually "exchanged".

Since the rules require it to be part of the exchange, it follows that it 
should be sent, copied, and reported in each log.

The question has been raised here as to whether or not the scoring robot at 
CQWW (and elsewhere) examines this element of the exchange and scores 
accordingly. I haven't noticed that the contest sponsor has answered that 

If scoring crosschecks logs for an accurate exchange, then it IS useful as 
an indicator of contester skill.
