FWIW, I agree with Adrian's interpretation [*].  "the packages in
main" "must not require a package outside of main" for "execution"
(... "Recommends").  While this sentence is fulfilled on i386, it is
violated on !i386 which imho is a Policy violation.

[*] However, I think Policy should be changed to requre Depends only
and not Recommends.  In the past, dselect would scream loudly about
Recommends not being fulfilled but these days the tools don't really
care as much anymore.
