You're on your own with these.

I don't think you want to go though A recommends B which depends on C
which depends on D etc." route on servers which should have only
the stuff installed you need. Or even on desktops which you want "clean".

If you want a minimalistic install, you don't want to install "meta- packages" either. You want to install a base Debian system plus a very few packages that you really need (without recommends) plus there dependencies. You certainly don't want Gnome or KDE or anything that means "everything is suite blah".
