Why is gnome3 missing gnome-menus?

I just installed FreeBSD 10.2 amd64 with gnome3 after a major hardware
upgrade. I installed gnome3 via pkg. But the Gnome Tweak Tool would fail
to load the extension for Applications Menu - and I was left wondering
and writing messages to many mail forums.
It turns out that gnome-menus was missing from my system. After
separately installing gnome-menus, I now have the Applications menu, and
things are fantastic. But I do wonder - why does the gnome3 meta-package
not include gnome-menus ? One would think that installing the
meta-package would install all basic functionality - or else there
really is no need for a meta-package at all.
