more pedantry: "depends on" versus "depends" versus "requires"

i'm thinking that the kconfig structure doesn't really need to
support all three of these dependency directives for Kconfig files. a
quick occurrence count:

"depends on": 4421
"depends": 45
"requires": 0

under the circumstances, why not just standardize on "depends on"
everywhere and remove the obvious redundancy from the scripts/kconfig/
parser files?
