thank you. I looked at this exact table before I raised the question. Not sure how I missed that!! – ravi Dec 9 '11 at 19:48
@ravi: I figure you missed it because not everyone thinks of IIS as "Network Infrastructure". Most people only think DNS and DHCP. – surfasb Dec 9 '11 at 19:59

I would have thought that being SBS, IIS was already a part of the core. Seeing as it's designed to run Remote Web Workplace and OWA. So I would say yes.
