Exactly. Unless you plan to examine each and every reccomendation of each
and every package you install then you should not turn off reccomendation
Recoomendations are intended to be weak depends. In other words
recommendations mean: "This package does not actually NEED the listed
packages, but it is unlikely you will want to install this package without
the listed package." An even better way to think of it is a Depends that can
be overridden without apt complaining.
