While not necessary to have it work, I would say that this kind of separation certainly makes your coding more readable, and better structured.
The line starting repstopdf becomes a command for a different processor — the unix shell — so it makes good sense to separate it visually from the surrounding LaTeX syntax.
IMHO it is a good idea, generally, to keep totally different concepts well separated visually within your source coding.
