Sometimes we might be annoyed by the read receipts because it may caused misunderstandings. If the read receipt option is on, everybody can see you have received and read the SMS. But sometimes you may be too busy or inconvenient to read or reply and it shows that you do read but no reply. Then it won't be a bad idea to turn this iMessage report off so that nobody knows you have or haven't read the message.  
You won't be able to turn off the notification of "Delivered" but you can off "Read".
