Everyone should. And I think RPM level should be based on oil temperature or at least add a gauge. It's frustrating having to guess when your oil is up to operating temperature. I usually give it 15 minutes in the Winter and no less than 10 minutes in the Summer of easy driving until I start driving spiritedly, but if I had a gauge telling me the temperature, I could adjust my warm up time accordingly.
