Personally, I don't mind if the threads are shown. I like the attention to detail but it doesn't bother me if bolts/screws/whatever are shown blank either, as long as the major diameter is correct so everything still 'fits'. It may be different for the manufacturing side of the industry if the models are being sent to fabricators? That's a guess on my part; I've never really been involved in the manufacturing/fabricating side. YMMV.
