The reason that taper is necessary on all cases is that many actions, including those operated by fingers (singleshots) is the initial force exerted on the case will "free" the entire case if there is present, rather than require "drag" for the entire length of the case without it. Most of these designs came after several hundred years of experiments, and all cases seem to have taper.
