Personally, I'd say implement Enhances: before banning such Suggests:

[And, I think that slink should go out "as-is" and hope that Enhances:
is ready for potato.]  

[But I do hope that for slink we at least will allow people to have an
"official debian cdrom set" which just contains main and not contrib --
in hamm you had to get contrib to get all the sources for main, or your
cdrom set couldn't be considered "official".]

I've a few more thoughts (on the level of collaberation which should
be present between maintainers for Suggests: Recommands: Enhances:
or Depends:), but I guess I should wait for attention on underlying
problems before running on about such things.
