Hmm, I dont know the proper software engineering term, but just on the
basis of instinct, it seems wrong for a function to use something that
it can get on its own.

It's kind of like being at a 5-star hotel. It might be very possible
for you to bring your own pop tarts and toast them, but they go to
great lengths to have a continental buffet ready for you without you
doing anything.

Good question, airheaded answer :)
