The problem here is that tasksel call 'aptitude --without-recommends'
to install the packages so it won't be direct affected by apt changes
in terms of install recommends by default[0] when possible, that mvo
just announced. As mvo also wrote, d-i "is already ready for this move
and so it shouldn't affect the installation. It's currently disabling
it, explicitely.".

Keep in mind that tasksel is mainly used during installation so to
keep stuff sane, I wouldn't remove '--without-recommends' argument
from tasksel at least before October 1st, otherwise the tasks will
unintentionally bloat a test installation.
