You're joking, right? ;-)

Well, I did the same search you probably did (just for the "fun" of it).
I don't think this is one of those things were it's "defined".  Given the
fact that it shows up in a handful of files, it seems pretty clear to me
that it's defined where someone decided it was needed.  So, if you're 
concerned that it should only be included at the system level if it's
"standard" to do so, I would suggest that it not be included unless the
need arises (comparable to the MS approach).
