Maru is of the opinion that it is overkill. I feel the same way, but I am not
involved much with deployment issues so my feelings should not sway anyone.

Note that ncclient is not the only package used by vendor solutions that is
not listed in requirements.txt. The ones I am aware of are:

  ncclient (cisco and brocade)
  heleosapi (embrane)
  a10_neutron_lbaas (a10networks)

Maybe we should start exploring "some other centralized way" to list these
type of dependencies?
