Nope, I use simple devices without pairing.  The little mini bluetooth 
keyboard I use with my APRS tracker is just connected each time with 
hidd -- no pairing required.  I believe the pairing provides mutual 
authentication and encryption, something that you want for most things, 
but it doesn't seem to be required.
