It is a good idea to explicitly specify at least one package that fulfills a
virtual dependency. You could view it as the recommendation of the packager,
if you don't care about the httpd daemon, apt will install apache. You can
still override this upon install time by selecting another httpd daemon of
your choice. And if you already have a different httpd daemon installed, apt
will be happy anyway.
