What do you mean?

By including only the headers you need can substantially affect the time
you spend waiting for compilation, especially in a large application
such as Evolution.

That time can of course be used to improve you application so, in a way
it can effect the quality of a code but not necessary.

So I would say that's a good reason for not doing it.
