Remember that MO diagrams are supposed to show resonance structures, molecules with unpaired elections, and information about the bond energies which all depend on valence electrons and how they bond with other atoms. The important information should be in which electrons are left unpaired and drawing the inner shells would only tell you those are completely filled. So, yeah, only the valence shell needs to be drawn.
