I am not sure about that one to be honest. But i can see reason behind it
and would also
ensure that projects contain all parts required (so we don't have to
embed them into the files).
Please embed them. Users now always forget to include the cache lib in backups or archives all the time. What makes you think this will be different in the future? (You would need a project local lib with the asset in the state of the project anyways. This is to ensure against changes in the library. So you do not save on storage space in any way and only increase the danger that users do not include these additional files in backups.)
