I'm surprised this is news for you.

Depends are used when something doesnt work without the depends. XFCE
definitly works without a screensaver.

Recommends are used when it's very unlikely that someone doesn't want
this, but when it's not mandatory for functioning. Recommends are
installed by default.

So, no, replacing every depends with recommends is not a good idea.

As I see it, your point is that you dont seem to understand recommends.
