I know it's not the question asked by the OP, but as @Patent says it is useful to have some friction braking to prevent rusting/glazed discs and pads.

When we had the 225xe the braking became rather poor due to surface corrosion/glaze, despite having fairly mahoosive front discs.

After half a dozen hard braking episodes from 70mph to almost stopped the braking performance was noticeably better for a couple of months.

The car was mostly driven by the missus on her urban commute in EV mode so I suspect friction braking would have been near zero compared to regen.
