If every library defined the stdint types in the case of missing stdint.h, every library's header would conflict, and use of multiple libraries would require modifying the headers. And requiring a person to download a third-party header is impractical (indeed, one of the things I like about SDL as opposed to SFML and other similar libraries is that SDL has no third-party dependencies).
