I remove the tape for exactly the reasons you mentioned...I know masking tape is expensive but, repainting the part of the car where the tape took the paint off when unmasking cost a lot more. I like to remove the tape as soon as the primer has flashed (when possible). This way the primer hasn't had a chance to cure and comes of the masked area easily and leaves what you masked off, masked off.
