The clocks are both optional but even if they were assumed to be present
they aren't usable without knowing the rate which can vary widely.  It
is possible that the system may be able to infer their presence and
rates from other information such as the audio system integration
compatible string but that's out of scope for this and doesn't seem like
a particularly good idea to encorage anyway.
