I'm not sure if that's the right direction of dependency, conceptually.

The philosophy of (at least) the GNOME metapackages is (I think: but I
am not (yet) a Debian/GNOME team member) that they provide what upstream
GNOME provides.  So depending on a 'base-desktop' package would work
against that philosophy.

(It might turn out to be the most pragmatic thing to do.)
