It is not an issue. The purpose of the idle retard was to cause the cylinder temp to be hotter at idle to burn more pollutants. Basically it was for emissions. If you want your engine to run cooler, leave it plugged.

Member psalt posted about this quite extensively. If you want to read up more on it, search for his old posts.
