crda and hostapd linked statically against libnl - save some space?

I have both the crda and hostapd-mini packages installed on my system. Both make use of libnl to use the nl80211 interface to communitcate with the kernel. However, both are statically linked against libnl, effectively duplicating the code in the squashfs and the kernel.
IMO they should be linked dynamically against libnl to save that space. Is there a specific reason why this isn't done?
