Roofing felt not only acts as a barrier in the unlikely case of the shingles leaking, but also provide the more important function of cushioning the shingles so that the expansion/contraction of the plywood underneath doesn't crack the shingles after 10 - 15 years. I have seen this several times. NENER put on an shingle roof without felt!!
