I can sort of follow your logic, but it would not be mine. I don't see
the absence of jpeg support (for example) as being any kind of anomaly
either. It's a "neat feature that many people like to have and might
get confused about when it's not available, so they should get extra
warning about its absence". Same for an X toolkit IMO.
