Only if you assume that no one using Minimalist-wide will ever want an 
HD, CC, or Stereo indicator.  And, since someone using the 
Minimalist-wide theme has (should have? ;) a wide-screen TV, chances are 
that TV is for HDTV, meaning the HD indicator becomes even more 
valuable, so eventually someone will add it to Minimalist-wide...

After all, your point would be completely valid on a closed-source 
commercial product, but Myth is free, so any one of us can modify it.  ;)
