VPN tunnel keep alive in a world turning ICMP OFF

So, the question came up.   Do we need to allow ICMP to Linux servers to keep the tunnel alive?   From experience the answer seems to be NO it doesn't need to be allowed.   But what are the repercussions if any?  I wanted to put it up for discussion.  To me it seems like it would at least create some unwanted Overhead.  To me having ICMP off on the Linux servers along with turning telnet, tcpdump, traceroute etc is making network administration a bit more challenging.
