In listing 7.20 the EarlyStopping callback monitors accuracy, and the ModelCheckpoint callback monitors validation loss.

In the comments above the call to model.compile, it says "#Since we monitor 'acc', it should be part of the metrics of the model."

Does validation loss also need to be part of the metrics of the model, since we are monitoring it with the ModelCheckpoint callback?
