Writing back to admissions deans?

I don't know how often this will come up for me, but I was wondering if it is polite to at least send an e-mail to whichever admissions officer writes a note for your acceptance letters.  Or is it more customary to remain silent unless the school is your first choice?

The norm is to remain silent.  But I guess a note to the dean of admissions at your top choice is OK.  They can't rescind your acceptance for a poorly worded thank-you, right?  I doubt, however, that it would help with finaid.
