if you have a healthy supply of active worms in your soil they will do a very good job of keeping any thatch down including the mulch from lawn mowing.

Doesn't matter if you have worms or not. Thatch is a different problem than clippings not decomposing. It's a myth that a thatch problem is caused by leaving the clippings.
