Question: Should I replace the water pump at the same time as the Timing Belt on my '05 Sienna?

I have a 2005 Toyota Sienna XLE that has just reached 90,000 miles. I know that I need to get the timing belt replaced, but should I have the water pump replaced, too?

I read an online forum where another '05 Sienna owner was told that the water pump for this model is electric and does not need to be replaced as part of the maintenance schedule. Is this true?
