I think the "tabu" case (and longtable...) is different from "rotating".

No feature in Org requires "tabu" or "longtable" unless user explicitly
writes "tabu" or "longtable" somewhere in the buffer (i.e.
in :environment attribute).

On the other hand, "rotating" or "wrapfig" may be needed without the
user knowing about it (e.g. when setting :float or :wrap attributes).

Therefore, I think "wrapfig" and "rotating" belong to the same boat.
Either we require them both in default packages, or we do not require
any and add a footnote about it in the manual. I have no preference.

On the same line, we could remove "longtable" from
`org-latex-default-packages-alist', if only to spare a few kittens.
