Android Why does the YYG Google Play Licensing extension use the billing permission?


The YYG Google Play Licensing extension (obtained as part of the YYG Google Play Services extension) uses the com.android.vending.BILLING permission by default. This permission is accessed through the extension, through the "Extra Platforms," Android flyout window.

As far as I can tell from Google's docs and my own experimentation, this is unnecessary. Does anyone know why the Google Play Licensing extension includes this permission?
