Humm... Apple must have forgot to put a Guide Manual in the box with your iMac, because mine say's to "Remove any plastic film from the outside of your iMac before you set it up"iMac, Mac Mini, iPad, iPods, Mac OS X (10.6.8), (10.8.3), Safari, iTunes, iPhoto

I dont believe there would be much of a problem, however if it were me i would go ahead and remove the plastic from the device. especially on the screen, the picture quality will be MUCH MUCH better. The display is fairly tough and hard to scratch. I only clean my screen with a microfiber cloth and electronic cleaning spray, and other than that, i do not really touch the screen. However, I have owned my iMac for little over half a year, and I have not experienced a scratch or anything. Aside from cleaning, the screen is in PERFECT condition.

When my 27-inch iMac arrived, the plastic covered ALL the air intake and exhaust openings. Running with those blocked would fry your computer in a short time at worst, and at best you would get unexpected shutdowns as the thermal protection kicked in to save its brain.
