Metapackages are an exception here anyway. While we should not try to
move too much around the Blends metapackages are re-uploaded short
before the final release. The rationale is that dependencies might
have been removed in the freeze process. But for sure the release
team wants *small* changes at that time so we should really hurry up
in changing things.

I'm fine with this. In the past I made several attempts to make med-bio
more fine grained but it was not actively supported by others and I'm
personally lacking the required detailed knowledge.
