??? Necessity no. Are there practical benefits yes.
The policy of the kernel developers in general is that if your apps
includes kernel headers and it breaks, it is a kernel problem.
As for ioctl it is a giant mess that needs to be taken out and shot.
And yes there are places where even the mighty glibc is in the wrong.
