meson and ninja come in pair, and:
systemd already depends on both
openrc wants to switch to meson.
many xorg parts depend on meson
mesa & co depends on meson
cmake-utils.eclass defaults to ninja as default makefile generator for EAPI=7

those are damn  good reasons for inclusion, those tools becoming essential.
and it's only couple of lines of text, not a big deal.
and the lines are not shown if package in question is not installed.

having rust in output of initial  --info also can be quite handy as recent 
cargo/rust issue showed but yeah, pkg_info probably could deal with that for 
now at least. not a very popular ebuild function, never knew it existed. 
Thanks  Kent for pointing it out.
