So what you're really battling against is enforcement of Recommends,
not about enforcement of Recommends in a particular frontend, otherwise
you would use aptitude.
I think we should eat our dog food and fix Recommends to be useful

Suggests and allowing back some of the actual Depends as Recommends.
