Well, I'm thinking of uploading the package with that change, so that the 
recommends goes away...

Besides that this is something not done before, are there any (known) 
technical reasons against it? I really can't see any, especially as new kernel 
or xulrunner packages do introduce new source+binary packages..

ok, cool! Will do so.

Just another question: ~deb7u1 will cause the version number to be lower than 
in sid and jessie, but also lower than what we have in Edu Wheezy currently. 
OTOH, +deb7u1 will cause the version to be higher than in sid+jessie.
  Do you have any idea how to solve that, short of doing dummy uploads to sid 
too? I tend to lean on using ~deb7u1 and ignore the Edu archives
