Mounting Heights of various fittings and fixtures are a good practice. In some simple projects they may not be required. However, by showing the various conditions, you eliminate any doubt about what is expected.
These mounting heights are suggested to specify any special conditions that the project or codes might require. This approach is far better than including the information in specifications that, unfortunately, are not always available when needed.
As you collect information on various conditions, it becomes a simple matter to include this information in the drawing set.
