The keysym utility library does rely on <X11/keysymdef.h>, as does  
pretty much anything that uses it.

Why bother with an equivalent file? It doesn't have any other  
dependencies, and it would just be another duplication of code to  

I feel the same about the set of standard atoms. I think it was  
unwise to duplicate them for util/atom. Better would be to split  
these into two separate packages that could be installed underneath  
either libX11 or libxcb.
