I'd say that it's more like saying "Why should a include a proposal

I wouldn't say so, but I would say that the problem of "let's design a
new PQ primitive" is independent from "let's design a PQ handshake for
an anonymity network." Ideally, the first one is something you'd get
done in a way so as to be generally useful, and you could specify the
second in terms of the first.
