For sure, check the valves (if only to help you sleep). Then, if you need to replace the shims to re-gap them, you can do it while the timing belt is off.

There is a wealth of information regards the engine (including a timing belt remove/replace procedure) on the TurboEsprit mail-list site on Yahoo.
