Is there any reason to keep the rear fuel pump with EFI?

As i sort through the low fuel pressure issues on my ride, a recent thread on fuel pumps got me wondering: Why do you guys with EFI installs even keep the second (rear) fuel pump. If the pumps are in series, and only needed for CIS, why keep it?If the second pump fails, will there be pressure issues because the rear is not pumping? I have replaced my front pump with a Bosch 44, only to discover that my fuel pressure still remains low (37). I am replacing my fuel filter tommorrow, then checking the FPR, and the rear pump seems fine, but can i just get rid of it and be ok?
