3) the binary will be smaller.
Once again,it all depends on user priorities. Maybe we should really
add CONFIG_HARDCODED_TABLES as suggested by Michael once.

See Diego's answer. And if nothing else, it would at least be for
consistency. Moreover, this header will probably be used at least
once as a model to create a new header for something else, and
then guards will be missing in this new header.
So even if it's not usefull in itself right now, it's just a matter
of "put it in every new header and never think about it anymore".
It will avoid future problems.
