Apparently the only person who cares that it doesn't completely uninstall all related files is someone who doesn't use Windows anyway.
Besides, I think there are other functions that may still use those files (like ActiveX components and even other 3rd-party applications) so it's probably not wise to uninstall it completely. iirc, even XP Lite still includes many of the files for IE and WMP because they are required for the system to function properly.
