Not strictly necessary, no, but it seems she is going to do it anyway. Conquering the vast majority of it probably is necessary unless all the other wielders step forth and turn to her side. I don't see Charlie or anyone else lining up to do just that, yet. And then there is the issue of what the unified arkentool wielders will do with their tools. "Bringing the Arkentools together is [only] the next step". Conquering the world at that point would be a doddel, one of those "exercises left for the reader" or the point at which you shut off the game because you have obviously won and there is no enjoyment left in playing. And while in a dramatic setting that is not necessarily true, it only hammers home how desperately the eventual underdogs will want to stop her now, before things get even worse. Until Wanda steps forth and loudly proclaims that she has no intention in conquering the world the rest of the world will assume that it is exactly what she is doing. The "one world side" is already the Magic Kingdom's boogeyman. It's obviously Charlie's as well.
Oh, another reason that Wanda will not turn to join Charlie...forgot to mention because it's the most obvious one...leaving one Arkentool user (Stanley) for another does not advance her goal of bringing them together. By burning bridges with Stanley it would actually hurt her goal.
