This strikes me as a debhelper bug -- it should only put deps it uses in
the misc:Depends - if the next version of debhelper ends up introducing
a new feature that needs a package, there'll be no way for it to find
it's way onto the system (correctly).

Anyway, I suspect you're right. I've reverted this in SVN.

I'll file a bug on debhelper, that's not great behavior.
