When is blind baking appropriate?

For those who don't know what blind baking is, it's the pre-baking of the bottom crust of pies so it doesn't get soggy/undercooked when filled with filling.

That being said, it seems that blind-baking is beneficial in every pie recipe since a bottom crust that holds up to a filling is desired in every pie. But is there a hard and fast rule for when blind-baking is necessary and when it isn't? Because truth be told it is kind of a pain to blind bake.
