"Prunable in transmission" means that you have to include it when not
sending the witnesses?

That is a name collision with UTXO set prunable.  My initial thought when
reading that was "but scriptSigs are inherently prunable, it is
scriptPubKeys that have to be held in the UTXO database" until I saw the
"in transmission" clarification.
