I think all the kickdown pedal does is tell the transmission to go into sport mode (downshift and change shifting times) and the ECU to go WOT.
Removing it wont do any good I dont think. Try going WOT without pressing the kickdown switch, notice the transmission stays in regular mode and dosn't downshift immediately? (unless it's already at a low RPM)
I press it all the time, but thats just because I'm in manual mode and want all the acceleration my little 323 auto can get I typically either use the manual button or drop the shifter into 3 to switch the transmission into sport mode instead of waiting for it to go "Oh, he's going WOT now..." and downshift. In other words, I dont USE it.

A funny little thing...I have a bunch of Ricer friends who threw a lawnmower engine, excuse me, a "exhaust" cannister on their civics that were automatic. They punch the gas and go until it revs high, then left off to let the engine shift, then do it again through the other gears...basically, all they try and do is make it sound like a manual and its really funny...
