You're liable to tear a nacelle off by turning too quickly without banking.
Also from a physic point of view I wouldn't like to be a crew of a ship that turn without banking. Imagine turning hard left without banking, that right wall will have a few dent and blood stain from crew smashing into it or you would need crazy powerful inertial dampener to stop that from happening.
