For IETF RFC development, there are specific fonts that are required for the 
PDF format (these are Recommends not Depends because very few RFCs need to be 
in the PDF format, so most people might do without both the fonts and the 
other PDF tools needed.  It's not a free for all if you're building documents 
for the IETF.

The whole situation does seem somewhat messy.  In addition to the defaults 
changes, I guess things are getting moved between packages as well.  We 
recently had #1050053 [1] filed suggesting we change  the Recommends on fonts-
noto-unhinted to "the appropriate package" since it's now empty.  No idea what 
that would be though.  Suggestions welcome.
