Re: No xorg dependency for kde-minimal?

Thanks Florian & Sune for that answer, looks like an interesting use-case for my server :-D

So I understand that kde-minimal doesn't have a dependency to xorg.
But only a suggest with kde-full doesn't sound logical to me, but (at least) a recommends to kde-
standards does.
I guess that most users install KDE on their main/only machine and for it to be useful you'd need 
xorg. And with the default settings, APT would install recommends, so a 'normal' user would get a 
fully functional (non-bloated) KDE system when installing kde-standard.

So why is xorg only a suggests on kde-full?
