For DebianParl and Debian Design I deliberately avoid tagging as 
metapackages: apt then don't flag as auto-installed (see 
/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01autoremove), and I want aptitude to do 
auto-removal when removing a blend package.

I have not filed a bugreport since I don't know what is intended 
behaviour for metapackages.

You only say "metapackages" above.  I disagree if you suggest that it 
should be mandatory for blend packages to be tagged as metapackages (in 
the form they are currently handled).
