"standard reach" brake calipers- necessary for 28c?bcm119

I'm in the early stages of choosing a frame that I will use for fast road rides and light touring. I'm considering custom steel. For touring I will run 28c tires on my old Open Pro wheels. Should I consider a frame made for the longer reach Ultegra brakes for extra tire clearance, or would this be unnecessary for 28c tires? It seems most folks that run the longer reach brakes have 35c tires, which I don't foresee myself using.
