Define "must". I use the driver from rpmfusion, not because I "must",
but because I choose to.

I have dual monitors at work, driven by an NVidia NVS 290. It does
work on F12 with nouveau as I tried it. But I lose 3D acceleration
which I "like" (not need) because I find that some of the Compiz
effects actually speed my workflow. (things like window previews are
reasonably useful when you have tens of terminals or browser windows

I would say that I need to use the proprietary driver, because it
improves my work - but there is no technical necessity.

I have no problems in this area. I find the rpmfusion provided driver
more stable for what I want to do than nouveau.
