Underdrive pulleys and loss of vibration damper? (archive)

I have been looking at underdrive pulleys and notice that when you install the underdrive pulleys that you have to remove the stock vibration damper.

Does this cause anyone any concern? By this I mean, why did BMW go to all that trouble to put a vibration damper on the car if it does not address some kind of vibration problem? Is this a problem that will show up not today but maybe 60,000 or 80,000 miles from now? Is it really safe to drive around without a vibration damper on your car?

I'm not trying to start anything. I'm just trying to understand, since I'm no mechinic.
