No it is not, mkinitcpio is definitively not needed.
It's only required in order to execute the pacman hooks for a linux
kernel package (or do so manually). And core/linux is not required to
use archlinux, although it is required to boot it on bare metal.
The most recent version of my PKGBUILD draft for this "base-system"
PKGBUILD (which I shared with Levente during the planning stages of this
proposal) can be found here: https://paste.xinu.at/KZmYqQwIO/
I've actually listed
optdepends=('linux: bare metal support')
And IMO that is exactly where mkinitcpio belongs -- as a hard dependency
for any package which intends to implement a kernel for booting to bare
