Should dalli and redis gems be standard issue (part of "rails new") since they are "require"d?

No. They should not. They are only required if you use one of those cache stores. They are not used by default when you generate a new Rails application.

After thinking about this, I changed my mind and was going to delete the question.
THANKS for the thoughtful response.
