Not base package, no. Anacron is neither needed for booting the
computer nor for rescuing it. Important or standard, maybe. At the
moment cron Suggests: anacron; maybe it could Recommend: it?
I hear the argument for anacron's importance, though. Anacron could
always be installed as a standing, with a postinst asking whether it
is wished or not.
I even use anacron on my machine which is up most of the time, but has
been known to have down periods ;-)
