Its more then that. You want full surface contact from the ring bearing surfaces. The first time you do it youll most likely see you are only gripping your scope at the corners of the rings.

Even properly aligned rings need lapped or your scope can move under recoil

Ill dig up a link where I wrote about it. I actually thought I finished that page..doh

I also made mine, many years ago, very simple, and I just use valve lapping compound from the auto parts store.  I don't see a need to buy the expensive stuff...  As for one piece mounts, in theory, you shouldnt have to lap them but I have found that the do sometimes have sharp, or uneven edges.  I don't think it absoultely neccesary on the one piece ones, but it only takes a minute so why not...
