When moving a wordpress site from one host to another is it necessary to download the old wp-config.php (the correct the path to find the new db user/ url etc)

in otherwords, my question is this:

is there stuff on the old wp-config.php (other than define db, define db user, define db location ) that is required for the new wp to work?

I feel it's best to post this issue at WordPress forum. The reason why because it's their product and platform. Over the years, WordPress add new features regarding connection and how to config.

Here are some links regarding about wp-config.php:
