Are scales okay in fish stock?

I always scale my fish heads and tails (my fishmonger does not scale these properly) when before making fish stock. The head especially takes me quite some time. Since I strain everything through a cheesecloth anyway, I was wondering if it would be okay to just leave the scales on. Are there any undesirable side effects to leaving on the scales?
