No, you can do it separately now (my GCC patch from yesterday didn’t
quite make it.)

Yes.  It also means that from now on, gettext will depend not only on
glibc but also on Expat, and that upgrading Expat will entail a full
rebuild (so it can only be done in core-updates.)

It’s probably OK because Expat has no extra dependencies, is quite
small, and fairly stable.  Otherwise that would be less convenient.
