Why? It's mechaniclaly centered by the spindle. And I don't think the
plastic pack casing would do much if the disk did decide to break up, so
not having the casing is not much of a hazard.

I don;t think they are touching. I think there's a spinning disk between
them. Maybe what you are seing is one head and its refleciton on the disk.
