Yes, it is optional. Your choice is:
1) wash for 30 minutes
2) HCA then wash for 5 minutes
If you are just testing something and you don't expect the film to last, then you can just wash for 5 minutes and be done with it. I do this for junk project and test rolls.
Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?
