Definitely.  The toolset will deal with this.  The code to generate the
metapackages will decrease any Recommends that can not be resolved in
*testing* to Suggests automatically.  So even if we might loose some
packages due to RC bugs (I guess dicompyler is some candidate for this
due to [2]) the metapackages will be re-rendered short before the real
release to reflect this loss.  There is no need to edit the tasks file
for this.

The tasks files are containing packages in Git only also with
recommends.  Yes, once they migrated to *testing* the metapackages will
include the packages.  The web site will render the packages in the
according section.  Please use "Suggests" *only* if the package is of
some lower relevance for the task.
