That's not the main reason for keeping world clean, since emerge --update
will update direct dependencies of packages in world, and --deep will
update anything upon which a package in world ultimately depends.
The main reason is that it stops your system being filled with cruft by
allowing emerge --depclean to work. If you put a library in world, then
even if you have removed all the packages that previously needed it, or
those packages no longer depend on it, portage will still consider it a
necessary part of your system.
