At minimum, even if every engineer simply ignores the non-unified EWS, it also makes it easier for someone trying to fix a trim missing include build issue to scan through PRs to look for this EWS failure in order to narrow down on which patches (and therefore possible includes) to focus on.

The post-commit Non-Unified build bot already covers this use case: 

  - https://build.webkit.org/#/builders/133 

This bot is useful to pinpoint which commit introduced a change that
broke non-unified builds. Although if it's not kept in good shape it
becomes less and less useful over time, as errors accumulate and mask
one another. 

So the proposal is that the EWS Non-Unified bot should work as all the
other EWS bots do.
