Those can be considered a special case, I suppose. The main reason we
want them visible is so that we can turn them on if nothing in the
kernel build uses them, but we know they may be wanted by modules we
build later. 

We should turn them on by default, and have an option to turn them off
which is dependent on CONFIG_EMBEDDED. Then it makes sense to use
