[cdt-dev] Why does CDT contribute to early Startup?

Dear CDT developers,

I noticed today that CDT contributes to earlyStartup:
Window > Preferences > General > Startup and Shutdown
   "C/C++ Development Tools Debugger UI"
   "C/C++ Standard make Build UI"

I'm slightly worried about these entries, because they
mean that even if I do not use anything from CDT it
will activate practically all the CDT plugins (since
Debugger UI depends on UI, which depends on Core; 
Make UI depends on Make core); thus making my Eclipse 
startup time worse.

Is it really necessary to have these start up 
automatically? What happens if I disable these?
Can these be improved in the future to allow for
lazy plugin loading and thus improved startup time?

Fast startup time is quite important for our 
commercial product...
