It is true, but more to the point, full blown MTA can do local delivery 
without being started as daemons. So no MTA should be started in the 
default case.

That being said using a specific provides for local mail delivery,
like mail(local), such that something lighter than full blown MTAs, 
like esmtp+procmail can be used as cronie dependency is a good thing,
but it avoids dependency bloat, not startup time bloat.
