Should we reply to the editor after a paper has been rejected and we don't plan to revise/resubmit?

I don't recall ever having received such an e-mail as an editor, so it's not standard (let alone mandatory), but I wouldn't be unhappy to receive one. I doubt anyone would care enough to make it worth the effort, but it could be a nice gesture if you feel inclined.
