No. Not for me. But perhaps for other users. Perhaps not as savvy when 
it comes to computers. Would it not be nice if these people easily could 
get information from the system in form of mails?

Removing sendmail and syslog will probably make it harder for an 
ordinary user to understand problems on their computer, as they not 
easily can get information about what is happening to their system.

Including sendmail and syslog makes it easier for the ordinary user. And 
that is a good thing. At least in my book.
