Yes yes yes ...

Let me explain again with plain text output examples.

Option1:(this / that)
6.9. What is meant by saying that a package Depends / Recommends /
Suggests / Conflicts / Replaces / Provides another package?
Option2:(this/ that)
6.9. What is meant by saying that a package Depends/ Recommends/
Suggests/ Conflicts/ Replaces/ Provides another package?
6.9. What is meant by saying that a package
Depends/Recommends/Suggests/Conflicts/Replaces/Provides another package?

(Option 3 yields 3 lines if this section is used in reference, ugly.)

Please update me your opinion on this matter.  My current understandings
       Option1(this / that)  Option2(this/ that)  Option3(this/that)
Osamu  Yes                   OK                   prefer to avoid
Josip  Better over Opt2      prefer to avoid      No comment
Denis  No(Strong)            No comment           Yes(Strong)
Chris  Yes?(implied)         No comment           No comment
