Well, maybe you don't but I do - and a defining characteristic of
"Embedded Systems" is resource restriction.  I'd personally be
disappointed if we don't make an early commitment to strive to keep
resource requirements on the base system as small as possible.  That's not
to say that I think we should force that on all people who use the system
- but its an awful lot easier to add things to a minimalist system than to
try and pare them away from a system that wasn't designed at the outset to
be minimalist.
