I do not know whether you are talking about a _run-time_ require or
about the (eval-when-compile (require ...) ...) _in this particular

If you are talking about (eval-when-compile (require ...) ...) _in
general_ then the following text from `(elisp)Coding Conventions'
which encourages use of this construct to avoid compiler warnings
should be changed:

     Sometimes adding a `require' for another package is useful to
     avoid compilation warnings for variables and functions defined in
     that package.  If you do this, often it is better if the
     `require' acts only at compile time.  Here's how to do that:

            (require 'foo)
            (defvar bar-baz))
