No, you put wp_header( ) and wp_footer() *somewhere*. Index.php will do.
For example, many themes break wp-cc because I hook into wp_footer to
output the creativecommons.org image.
wp_header() is usually there in every theme so it's not really a concern.
The comment_form is inherited from the default theme if there is no
comments.php so that's not really a requirement. I think that's true of
wp_meta() in sidebar.php too.
Anyway, it's a complex interaction of functions and whatnot, which is
why I was writing a parsing validator.
