We are trying to reduce the dependencies of hyperref, eg the hyperref
change log shows

2023-12-19 Ulrike Fischer
* hyperref.dtx: remove letltxmacro package. Is unused.

2023-11-26  David Carlisle
* hyperref.dtx: Remove infwarerr

2023-11-14 Ulrike Fischer
* remove ltxcmds dependency in hluatex.dtx
* remove ltxcmds dependency in nameref.dtx (v2.56)
* remove ltxcmds dependency in backref.dtx (v1.44)

2023-11-11 David Carlisle
        * remove ltxcmds dependency

But as you noted it's a tangled web of dependencies and it's better to work
in small steps.
