Absolutely they would.  And frankly I'm strongly opposed to removing any
module, even mod_imap or mod_asis, from the default on 1.3 or 2.0 because
we've now well-established what the default is.  Principle of least
astonishment.  A configuration that worked in 1.3.27 should work in
1.3.28, and likewise for 2.0.x.  If you want to remove things, do it in
2.1, but not before.
