May I ask how they benefit?
It's only a (little) burden on the packages that use debhelper,
but I can't see any benefits for packages not using it. Nobody
will force debhelper on anyone.
As soon as you want to build something you will most probably
end up installing debhelper anyway, thus it's only wasted space
on the mirrors if all these hundreds of packages that use
debhelper have to declare this in their Build-Depends:.
On the other hand it probably makes counting them easier ... ;)
0 and 1. Now what could be so hard about that?
