I would say that not doing backups of RAID at any level is rather unwise.
Of course I have seen dual drive failures of a RAID1 array on about 5
occasions. I have also seen a dual drive failure and a controller SNAFU
of a RAID5 on 2 occasions.
Simply put, RAID is not a backup. RAID is to keep you running when a
drive dies. Backups are to get you running again when RAID fails or
when something happens that RAID doesn't protect from (file
deletion/corruption either accident or on purpose).
