I do think mobility stuff is important in genneral as it does help you perform the lifts. I know there is an argument about the lifts themselves being enough mobility work as long as you perfrom the lifts correctly, but I have my doubts about that.
That seems to be the way it goes: start with lots of fluff and then cut back.
