Do the new Zipp 303 clincher tires require rim tape?

The rim has holes with recessed nipples, similar to the Ksyriums, which do not use tape.

Any input and answers are appreciated.

the only place i put velox rim tape on my k's is around the valve hole. it takes away the sharp edge and has basically eliminated flats at the valve on those wheel. about an inch on each side does the trick.
