Ford has quite including them with the gasket kits (even the kit that originally was labelled "intake gasket" kit was relabelled to "gasket kit" without the intake gaskets). Ford sure do appear to be "encouraging" inspection and re-use. I know many techs that re-use them.
As for me, I think like you do and I replaced them when I did the headstids. I agee - they are cheap, but many people are into saving $30 or $40. Most likely the risk is low, the pressure certainly is!
