In fact it was so common that some gasket maufacturers (e.g. FelPro?) started advertising their new HGs as NOT needing to be retorqued.
The new "torque to yield" head bolts don't require retorquing, and in fact shouldn't ever be retorqued/reused after the first torque down. It is also why HG sets for the engines that use them are so pricey, as they include a new set of bolts.
My advice is to follow the gasket manufacturer's instructions, whatever they are.
