I'm not a fan of carrying an all-rounder for the sake of carrying one. Quiney, Hussey and Clarke are decent enough to bowl the 20-25 overs that may be required from a fifth bowler. If Australia have such a need; it's likely Kallis or Amla are scoring +100 and a bowler of modest ability like Henriques wouldn't make much difference.
