When to get a wheel alignment

Dealership recommends a alignment about every 20000 km or 12000 miles. I took it because of terrible roads here in Montreal and hitting a big bone jarring pothole recently. When do most people think a alignment is nessairy?

Well, whenever you change shocks/springs/toe rods/control arms, or any part that would throw off the recommended settings... :P

Dealer thinks that this is normal maintenance and should be done regularly. Do not see any recommendations in schedule guide. under normal driving conditions should this be done?

If the tires aren't wearing and it doesn't pull or anything I wouldn't touch it.
