replace baseboard over damaged drywall

I am installing new baseboard that will be higher than the original baseboard that was removed and I was wondering if I have to worry about repairing any ripped drywall paper sections that will be hidden by the new higher baseboard?

I agree, why bother?

I have a few areas of drywall covered by trim/moulding, I left unfinished. Some may see it as taking a short cut, but after having done some repairs where I went all out, only to hide the end product, I felt it wasn't necessary.
