why would you need it?

The nut, the fact that a pin goes through it, and a cotter pin should all hold it in place.

In Newbsauce's case, we JB Welded it since his threads were worn down and sometimes the arm would pull apart.

Just a thought that most mention to have the wastegate tighten up and secured, such that viberation would not loosen up and alter its setting.
