Absolutely. If a component uses headers from another component, it
should get them from there. A clean design demands we do not mix generic
code and component code.

Which is why I wrote the suggestion to begin with. Breaking the
component design is very far from what the more modular v3 design ever
tried to achieve. If we broke v3 in this matter, we must fix it too.  As
Ron said. It can be done with a simple -I flag. No component
code/headers under /include, it just doesn't make sense from a design
perspective, and breaking the design for syntactic sugar is not a good
