At some point we'll probably change the DLL load order for that particular DLL from native,builtin to builtin, native(via changing DLL_WINE_PREATTACH). In that case all those bugs would turn in to real bugs.

Besides, there are situations when you'd prefer not to use any Microsoft redistributable DLLs due to license reasons. Even if they came with the game.
