Where did you get that idea?  Any references to documentation stating

I suspect you confuse this with build-dependencies, where you can drop
dependencies on build essesials.  A package is supposed to have a
complete and correct list of dependencies for its binary packages.
Just look at how all binaries depend on libc.  It is a base package,
but still listed as a dependency.
