Absolutely not.

Make sure you've got a subnet object for every IP subnet and a site for every physical network segment that is separated by a connection which is < 10Mbps.  Keep the DefaultIPSiteLink for everything.

Exceptions:

1. You have horribly unreliable connections, so you need asynchronous replication - in that case, go with SMTP site link
2. For whatever reason, you need to manage bandwidth usage between certain sites.  In that case, use multiple IP site links and manage traffic by assigning costs.

In 99.99% of all implementations, the default link is good.  Don't change it.
