Isn't it?

Why would one ever install Exim in a _base_ system? To name just one.

I believe because certain things (like the daily update of the man and
locate databases) depend on the ability to send mail to a user on the
system if there is a failure or a problem.  Thus, without such
funcitonality it would be a broken system.  BTW, exim can be configured
to only do local mail deliveries (i.e., no incoming mail from other
hosts and no outgoing mail to other hosts).
