I don't want to have to know which packages I have to install to have a
fonctionnal gnome desktop. So I want to install gnome and I want it to
install a gnome desktop.

During last upgrade network-manager does break things on my station (home
theater, gnome desktop, kids game station, kvm server, 2 net providers, 
vpn, dmz,  local lan, ... you don't want to know). It was working before
network-manager, it works now with
         echo exit > /etc/defaul/NetworkManager 

I need gnome and I need network. My network.

apt defaults to install all recommands, gnome works fine without 
network-manager-gnome, network-manager-gnome depends network-manager and 
network-manager breaks some unusual installations.

http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-relationships.html :
    This declares a strong, but not absolute, dependency.
    The Recommends field should list packages that would be found 
     together with this one in all but unusual installations.

This field has been done for network-manager-gnome !
