Even with a polarized plug be it 2 or 3 prong, the most important thing is to ensure that the High side of the AC goes to the switch and the Neutral to the other connection.  
That's a good thing about the 3 prong, its always right..The repro plug prongs are the same size.
I'm doing a fan for my daughter now and I'm grounding it.Not everyone has GFI plugs.
False sense of security?Practical? It don't hurt anything.
My house still has,had the 2 prongs that I'm in the process of putting GFI plugs in all.Just for people safety.
I think the key is the connection to the fan. The outlet doesn't guarantee you've connected the hot right...
