It's not a dependency.  Emacs is full of code that doesn't bother to
auto-load functions which are known to be preloaded.  We preload Lisp
packages for several decades, and that's got to leave its impression
on the code which uses those packages.

bootstrap-emacs is not supposed to be different from emacs in that
regard, with a single exception: the Lisp packages it preloads might
be uncompiled, i.e. will work slower.  But it should have all the same
packages that emacs has.
