It would presumably turn a subsequent (require 'tex-site) into a noop:
this invocation is still frequently found in .emacs files.

Whether this is the intended effect, or whether this is basically a
leftover from our conversion to an XEmacs package (which concatenates
several other files), I can't quite remember.

But it certainly would not appear to be harmful.
