I don't think we should be including anything we don't use.

There is nothing stopping a plugin author using the builtin script  
loading functions in 2.1 to add these other libs in the same way the  
included ones are so that if more than one plugin uses the same  
library it only gets output once by the script loader.


wp_enqueue_script('dojo', '/wp-content/plugins/myplugin/dojo.js',  
false, '0.01');

Which will register the script with the script loaded and enqueue it  
for output.
