The maximal mount count check is optional. It exists because Linux has traditionally run on lots of cheap PCs people lashed together in basements, and because people like running release candidates, random patches they found on the Internet and so-on. If you're pretty confident that your hardware works and your filesystem driver works, these checks are surplus to requirements. Many operating systems don't perform such routine checks. Some don't even have the tools to perform them if you wanted to. So using tune2fs to disable the periodic checks isn't unreasonable. And you have backups, yes ?
