Maybe because some Windows programs expect it to be there?

You must not understand, oh young one, that Wine is a COMPLETE 
implementation of the Windows 32 (and now Windows 64) API, bugs and 
problems.  We cannot and will not 'choose and pick' what functionality 
that will or will not be built into this project.  Microsoft already did 
this for us.

No.  Please read my comment above.  Wine IS NOT LINUX/UNIX.  Wine IS THE 
WINDOWS API.  They are and will not be the same.
