I think I understand what you're asking, but I'm not sure.
If it's straight bipolar TTL, the high-Z input is usually at a "high" level. But iwith CMOS, you're in terra incognita. Stray charges can linger on lines a lot longer than on bipolar. Better to add some pullups--it shouldn't take much to clamp the inputs at a "high" state--100K should be fine. 10K will work fine on LSTTL.
