The Tilde must always be used when required by the word or statement, regardless.

I remember having read that prior to the advent of word processors, common practice was to omit the accent on capital letters (vowels). This was due to the fact that typewriters of the past were generally ill-equipped (lacked the necessary keys) to perform such functions which meant that in order to add an accent to a capital letter, the typist would have been forced to go back over each completed page of text and add the marks by hand.

Según la RAE:

  1. Acentuación de letras mayúsculas

Las letras mayúsculas, tanto si se trata de iniciales como si se integran en una palabra escrita enteramente en mayúsculas, deben llevar tilde si así les corresponde según las reglas de acentuación: Ángel, PROHIBIDO PISAR EL CÉSPED. No se acentúan, sin embargo, las mayúsculas que forman parte de las siglas (→ sigla, 5b).


Habría que consultar la nueva Ortografía de la RAE, pero hasta donde sé no modificó la regla.
