If you have a provision for ALAE and/or ULAE that is based on "claim count" (regardless of the size of indemnity payment, if any), then you'll need to capture that with a frequency model.

But agree that would need to also consider them in the severity model (with a zero indemnity potential).
I find your lack of faith disturbing
