  Nope, not at all. In fact, the Z Gundam's Wave Rider mode is about the
only transformation that's designed for atmopsheric re-entry. Most
transformations serve only to line up all the thrusters behind the mobile
suit's center of mass, sacrificing manueverability for sheer speed. Let's
see if I can think of any that serve additional functions...

  Asshimar: Streamlined for atmospheric flight
  Psyco Gundam: Transforms to use Minovski craft system
  Z Gundam: Atmospheric flight & re-entry
  Bound Doc: Transforms for protection, maybe
  Guntank R-44: Full of tanky goodness
  Tomliatt: Transforms into funny-looking helicopter

  Bawoo, ZZ Gundam, S Gundam, V Gundam, V2 Gundam, Zolo: Separation

  That's about all I can think of...
