Thanks for your quick reply, Mario.

I didn't know if fwupd is really useful without fwupdmgr. If using fwupd
without fwupdmgr is a common use case then yes, listing dbus as recommended
package is probably appropriate.

Even if systems are configured to not install recommended packages by default
(you are right, it does not solve it for me), then the list of recommended
packages can provide helpful clues, at least.
