Cisco 3560 QoS on trunk ports (switch-to-switch)?

If I have QoS defined on interfaces, should I/must I have QoS defined on the switch-to-switch trunk ports?  In reviewing our configs, I noticed that some of our trunk ports have the QoS-related settings while others do not.  Some in my circle have said that we can remove all QoS settings on these trunk ports while others say the QoS settings should be added to all trunk ports.  I am not familiar enough with QoS to fully understand the impact.  (It would seem to me that I should have QoS defined because it seems odd to me to allow congestion without prioritization at the trunks - however unlikely this congestion might be given the speed of the trunks.)

Please advise.  Looking for a good explanation.  Thanks!
