I think the answer is --- it depends. For example, if you fix the lines what will it do to he primary subject (if it makes them lean, then that might not be a good thing to do). Will the fix cause distortion? That might not be desirable. Is it very noticeable or only incidental? These and many other question may need to be considered in making the final decision.
Why not post an example to your portfolio and then perhaps we can expand the discussion. Here are two examples:
Framing of above shot of Candace is unstraightened.
Re: Perspective Control
Shot of Haley is more or less straight.
