No, you don't.

The highest IPv4 (Loopback) address on the router will be 
used as the Router ID. Leaving it non-deterministic may be 
risky, but valid.

Gert, is this true :-) - just curious, not out to crucify, 

In our case, we don't offer IPv4 access to the Internet 
"guaranteed" anyway. We guarantee that it will work in as 
far as forwarding it through our network is concerned (which 
is easy to guarantee), but not after it leaves our network. 
This is well-understood across the community.

In that respect, IPv6 is not different, for us.
