.NET Assemblies found in Web.config

I've busted this question into three parts.  This is part two.  

Over the last few months, I've dragged and dropped some chart controls and some other ASP standard and data controls onto some web forms in my project.   Subsequently, some assembly references have appeared in my project Web.config file.  

- Figure 1 shows the project's current assembly references in Web.config.  
- Figure 2 shows the project's current assembly references in the manifest.  
- One more piece if interesting information: If I delete all assembly references from Web.config on the development server, I can still build the project successfully.

Is it valid to simply delete the assembly references in Web.config?  Or, is there a reason to keep them there?

Deleting references from web.config can cause build errors if the code uses specially the web.config version of a referenced dll and/or the referenced assembly does not come from gac.
