Ya I always carry a roughly 24" x 18" CCF sit pad that I use under my feet in the hammock (though I also use a full pad.) It comes in unbelievably handy for any number of things. The first time you kneel at the fire ring to get the fire going you'll be glad you have it. I think mine weighs ~4 oz.
I thought you meant a full length pad for sleeping in a shelter. If I were to carry one, it'd be a small, compressible air pad like a Big Agnes... But my guess (having not done a thru) would be that that thing will be staring at you everytime you take it out of your pack and put it back in until finally you mail it home or sell it off.
