By and large, you need to remember Denny's DVDs was designed to be a teaching tool: it's designed to illicit exactly these sorts of questions. Do you really want to know what happens if the synchronization is removed? Trying removing it
Nothing happened? Maybe you're right, and the some of the synchronization in Denny's is frivolously(does this imply that the corresponding calls in certain versions of the SCJD are frivolous as well? Hmm...).
Or maybe there's actually a subtle reason why they exist, which you might notice if you break them. That's part of the learning process too
