getting a 1099-R should prompt you that you probably need to do something on your tax form with it. For a qualified Roth distribution, that something is to create the 8606.

Yes, agreed. It is always best to do what is right and not tempt fate with the IRS. I was just wondering if what might have kept the IRS happy is that the 1099-R specified the distribution wasn't taxable.
