This is a very interesting point. The boom is tightly secured in the frame with out the braces. I doubt that the weight of the tail being whipped around could bend the boom when the braces are not there (maybe someone has the properties of the boom and can list them and the weight of a trex tail ).

The tail braces may help protect the tail servo, tail boom and even gyro during a crash. Having the tail braces break will surely take out some energy of an impact.
My toughts only.
I'm waiting for the new Align CNC tail brace kit to come out and then stock up on 1m length CF rods which I can cut for repairs.

You really need the boom supports, they are there to:
1- as herleman said, dampen vibs
2- you can turn the gyro gain higher, as you have higher rigidity in the tail
3- if the bom would for some reason move, or try the boom supports keep it from doing that.
