If memory serves correctly, I believe the parameter was added a couple 
of years ago as a means / workaround for hung channels. At the time, 
there was not any overwhelming evidence as why a channel would 
occasionally hang. Some of the possibilities included unusual 
interaction from the opposite end of the T1/E1, anomalies in the 
dialplan, etc.

Now that a substantial amount of work / changes have been made relative 
to PRI's and other internal asterisk code, there appears to be less of a 
need to reset.

A reasonable approach might be to apply the parameter and pay close 
attention to channels that might be in some strange state. If none are 
observed, then leave it.
