Yes, I’m sure. Because it’s already broken for missing footnotehyper package.

LyX checks for the presence of footnotehyper.sty. 
The code in question adds \usepackage{footnotehyper} and this fails
in a non-obvious way on compilation if it is not present. 
So, IMHO, it’s better to use the information if it is present.

I don't say the UserGuide is compilable then - but at least this error is gone.
