Depends on the electronics, if the device can function without a supply
then it is OK for it to be optional.  This is moderately unusual but not
unknown.  It's obviously also OK to omit the supply if the system
doesn't use software regulators at all, though a kernel with regulator
support enabled would need to use dummy regulators to stub things out.
