Simple reset h/w question

On the Discovery F3 board I see in the schematics that the hardware reset (NRST) is a switch to ground in parallel with a 100n capacitor. This appears to double up as a power-on reset. Is this correct and is it sufficiently reliable that an external power control/monitor chip is not needed? 

At present I am using a MCP1316M with o/c output - can I omit it for the above scheme?
