Required? Maybe. Maybe not. :) I don't use any of those options. I'm not a gadget freak and don't carry my life around in a gadget. I also am a privacy advocate and will never post private information on any online service or cloud server. Yeah, I'm weird. ;) I also see many home users not needing those options. Nonetheless, I build my packages with those features because others use my packages.

If you look at the commit log for the 16th, you'll see that Tim moved those two packages to the dependencies tree. I presume they remain optional dependencies like avahi-tqt, but no longer are those packages cleverly hidden deep in Tim's web site. :)
