If you do that, approvals will break catastrophically.

Just make the New Pending Approval blank, RT doesn't send emails if
the template in use is blank.

It is interesting that you're using Owners of approval tickets (who
are typically the Approvers) AND have multiple approvers (which
generally means you're using AdminCcs).
