Dojo is used to only handle Ajax mode of Forms but to handle advanced field styling of Forms
as well that has nothing to do with Ajax.
Advanced styling means for example date picker which is done by Dojo's widget.

This means that Forms must depend on Ajax (Dojo to be more precise) despite the fact you use
Ajax or

I hope this clarifies a little bit.
