So, I think that support in tools besides tasksel is critical to this
policy proposal being useful.  I don't like the idea of having
frontend-specific fields being mandated by policy and don'tt see a
need for tasksel to be a distinguished frontend.  I understand why
apt-get might not want to support or reverse-recommends, but I think
that the actual frontends should support this.
