[aur-general] Should "base" packages be listed as dependencies?

I was pretty confident that "base" packages should be listed as
dependencies in PKGBUILDs, i.e. they are not assumed to be installed (as
opposed to "base-devel" for build dependencies).
This belief is reinforced by the fact that namcap gives dependencies error
about packages such as glibc (which is in "base"):
E: Dependency glibc detected and not included (libraries ['usr/lib/libc.so.6', 'usr/lib/libcrypt.so.1'] needed in files ['usr/lib/libcli.so.1.9.7'])
But I could not find any documentation about this. On the contrary, this
wiki page  says the opposite:
In addition, the base group is assumed to be installed on *all* Arch
Am I missing something obvious?
