I think you're right here, though I probably would indicate the
township boundaries on most maps in a similar (though somewhat less
prominent) manner to county boundaries - at least at certain zoom

And, of course, it all depends on the map.  In certain maps of the
county (like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Map_of_Mifflin_County_Pennsylvania_With_Municipal_and_Township_Labels.png),
townships may very well play a prominent role.
