Yes; before 2.6.15, the md driver in the kernel had no way to test arrays for read-correctness without doing a massive dd by hand or a reconstruction, and no recourse when a bad block was found but to kick the drive (bad news if reconstructing).
Neither of these are true any longer, thanks be to Neil Brown :) you're only in trouble now if you have *the same* block unreadable on enough drives.
