<<I carry no mortgage in retirement, but count the value of my house as part of the fixed income portion of my portfolio. Works for me; I sleep well. I wouldn't be willing to have all my assets in the stock market, even if I do miss out on some great gains.>>

I agree. Part of my early retirement strategy was paying off the mortgage and being debt free. I'm sure some arithmetic genius will come up with a formula that refutes that, but I too like feeling secure.
