I see it as going either way. It appears to be a widget area but also
appears to be the navigation area. If the default is remove (ie the list
functions) and replaced with non-navigation type plugins does the theme
remain "usable" is more the question in my mind.

I wouldn't require wp_nav_menu to be there, thats specifically for pages,
and doesn't look like a menubar just a widgetted area

For clarification, see this Theme:
<http://themereview.chipbennett.net/>The dynamic sidebar is in the footer
(actually, sidebar.php doesn't call dynamic_sidebar, but that's a separate
issue). The footer has an explicit call to wp_list_pages, but is output as a
list, not a menu bar.
Should I require wp_nav_menu here? I'm thinking *not*, but wanted a second
