Is that a good reason?  Do you agree that the student can simply claim himself not to be a dependent of the parents even if all the facts say otherwise?

Parents do get the benefit for credit for other dependent, but I agree with @itonewbie to let the law decides if the student is a dependent or not, and the rest follow.
