The fact that the CLT SDK is now preferred is another reason why we want to go back to requiring the CLT. After Xcode 11 was released and Mojave users upgraded to it, we discovered just how pervasive the problem of SDK paths baked into build scripts was, as zillions of bug reports started pouring in about the MacOSX10.14.sdk being missing. Having the CLT installed on the build server ensures that any SDK paths that do get baked in will be for something that continues to exist even if Xcode is upgraded or is not present.
