SCOM 2012 - Datawarehouse without SQL Reporting

I am deploying SCOM 2012 soon.  The design I was given shows nothing for a SQL reporting services server anywhere.  I'm told that since part of the design calls for a datawarehouse database that we must have a SQL reporting services server installed as well.

What I want to know is why.  It's my understanding that the mgmt servers will populate the DW db and via the consoles be shown to users.  So what does the SQL reporting services add for me and if it truly is required to be deployed when deploying the datawarehouse db, why it's required.  What breaks if it's not there or does it just not let you install the DW db even?

thanks again for the detailed explanation.  I was hoping this wasn't the case because it seemed odd that if it was required to use the DW data that it would be missing from the arch design.  oh well, one more thing to correct.  :)

thanks again.
