I try to take good care of my stuff but never felt the need to go that far. I don't think VPI is going away anytime soon, when you need a replacement belt they'll be there. Belts left on the turntable 24/7 last years in my experience. I suppose a case could be made regarding concern for the miniscule amount of pressure the belt applies in side force to the bearings, but those are pretty robust.
