Yes, I think that's reasonable. By way of comparison, ATOMIC_INIT,
etc. stayed in atomic.h. It makes sense -- you only need the types
for structure definitions, you don't need the initialisers.

I suppose if you have a header which defines an initialiser like sched.h
does, you'll want the list.h initialisers, but anything that complex
should be able to handle including the full list.h header.
