SBC valve seals

I have a .060 327 that I am reassembling for my kids 81 shortbox. I have dh iron heads with bronze guides that I am adding stem seals in addition to the o-rings. My question is can/do I get rid of the stock steel umbrella to reduce valvetrain weight?

Other related parts.

Most discard the OEM Oil Sheilds when using PC type seals. Example>
Will save weight.
