In general, using system libs might incur high amounts of redtape for
- using the external lib might incur bugs/regressions that are not encountered
  with the internal version and requires extra testing or bugfixing
- the external lib must be packaged in a recent enough version
- even a packaged version might need additional review and process to be usable
  by LibreOffice, e.g.

as such, having the option to fall back on a internal copy is highly desirable.
