Yes. A possible solution would be to introduce a new type of dependency.
I’m not sure the number of impacted packages justifies the amount of

Indeed. Every time the circular dependencies topic surfaces, we find
another maintainer who shows an example of a package for which circular
dependencies are necessary according to him. And every time, the package
quoted as an example can be fixed. I’m kind of tired of this behavior.
Given the low number of remaining packages to be fixed, it should be
forbidden by the policy so that maintainers fix their bugs instead of
finding excuses.
