Yeah, maybe. Or they could just waste someone's time mashing
together some definitions to prematurely turn two header files into
three instead of spending that time on resolving operational issues.
In either case it is a judgment call, and IMHO not your call to make.

Your arrogant follow-ups and self-righteous indignation, however,
is quite a bit less welcome. Please take it somewhere else.
