[aur-general] Should we still include VCS packages in makedepends?

As of pacman 4.2.0 there exist some variables in makepkg.conf that read:

#-- The the package required by makepkg to download VCS sources
#  Format: 'protocol::package'

It looks like pacman is able to see which package it needs to retrieve
a specific VCS source. Do we still need to include those in makedepends?
