Yet a package of a plugin should surely have a ‘Depends’ relationship to
the application package. Adding an ‘Enhances’ relationship seems
redundant in that case.

Is there a better example of when ‘Enhances’ is the right relationship
to use? A concrete example of such a case from the archive would be good
(even if the packages don't yet have ‘Enhances’ declared).
