I think lots of people don't use seed compost judging by the difficulty I have getting it sometimes.
I prefer not to use MP for those seeds I'm sowing in autumn and leaving outside. It's too soggy. But for quick germinators I think it's fine.
I don't think you HAVE TO anything Nick. You have a choice. Do some experiments, see what works for you
