Which is best, to create a dummy package or file bugs for every package
reverse depending on it? 

According to 
# apt-cache rdepends libcap2|wc -l

Interesting packages: zsh, bind9, syslog-ng, wodim, smbclient,
pulseaudio*, gnome-keyring, ntpdate, etc.

Not so few packages to check/modify and file bugs for.
