Using the add-on as needed prevents breaking existing code, that calls UDFs without special workarounds.
As to your comments about variables losing their value when crossing library boundaries, I'm fairly certain that variables do not retain their value when changing libraries voa far calls (including clipbar calls). I believe I have fooled myself into thinking I could retain a variable value, when in fact the clip restored it's value via a default mechanism (like ^$GetValue(default)$) or via passing a variable as an argument to a clip.
