Gzip compression - pre-compression vs. on-the-fly

gzip_static is what controls the precompression checks right?

The wiki says this:
"You should ensure that the timestamps of the compressed and
uncompressed files match."

What is the side effect if they do not? Will it not work unless they
both match? It says "should" but not "required"

Curious as to why that note is there. Thanks. So far I am enjoying
using nginx! I will be deploying it soon on some of a Fortune 100
company's webservers soon!
