a typical mast will be fine supported only by the lowers or uppers, as long as the wind is less than hurricane strength.

My boat got a new (keel-stepped) mast because the yard disconnected ALL the shrouds and went home for the night. It then blew over 40 knots and folded the mast over onto the neighboring boats.
