I doesn't agree with it.

cdd-dev is a binary package and this doesn't build-depends of any
package. The source package cdd build-depends of the doc tool.

If some maintainer what to *use* cdd-dev this does't need your your
build-deps installed, only deps. Your packages then will build-depend
of cdd-dev and of one doc tool, if need.

This is what I see. Is wrong?
