If *-module depends on *-utils, should *-source recommend it?

It seems like the common case for wanting to install a kernel module
source package is to build the module and then install it on the same
box.  Since the *-source package doesn't really depend on *-utils, why
not add a Recommends line?

For example, ndiswrapper-source would Recommend ndiswrapper-util,
while ndiswrapper-module-* would Depend on ndiswrapper-util still.
(Similarly for alsa-*, and any other modules.)
