Default Upstream Nymphing: Slack or Tight Line?

In Tom Rosenbauer's book he describes upstream nymphing this way: He makes a tuck cast then retrieves the tight line at the same speed as the current. He doesn't use an indicator.

Here's my question: Because the water near the bottom of the stream is moving slower than the water on the top, why wouldn't we leave slack in the
line and use and indicator? Wouldn't this help prevent the nymph from drifting too fast?

Thanks,

Randy
