I just mistakenly added that.
Thanks for your comment.

Dalvik wouldn't matter anymore would it? Since it was replaced with ART (Android Runtime Environment) and everything... You'll still want to wipe the regular cache partition though when changing or upgrading ROM's, kernels, themes and font mods.

Yes, as memphisslim said that while upgrading a ROM you have to remove all the cache that belongs to previous firmware or ROM.
Sometimes the older cache data may prevent your new ROM from booting correctly or your new ROM may continue in indefinite boot loop.
There could be other possible side effects also.

Thanks memphisslim for the detailed explanation.
