IIRC we've had this discussion a few times before.
IIRC the concensus (decree?) was always that applications should know what 
headers are needed for a certain (other) header, to not pull in things 
that my not be needed.

(And no, I never understood that either, and always thought headers should 
pull in what they need, but that's just my personal, uneducated opinion)
