Just an outrageously wild guess: OS/2?
Maybe the standard Windows headers were going back to the time where they
cooperated with IBM to create OS/2, so they decided to play it safe and create
a completely new header set that they would be able to reuse for their main
Windows tree in case IBM were to sue them in the very distant future?
The same goes for the actual CE source code, I guess...
