Well the only case in which you should never remove all your strings at once is if you had a really poorly designed and/or weak neck. I remove all the strings on my six string all the time when I oil the fretboard. If your neck is already warped, then there are bigger things to worry about.
"So often our hands get caught up in ruts of muscle memory. 'Muscle memory' is an accurate term. We get used to doing certain things, without even being aware of them. This ultimately not only shapes and therefore limits our technique, it also shapes what we compose, what we write. We end up thinking still unknowingly trapped in that box." -Adam Nitti
