dropping dependencies for a package

Hello All:

If a new version of a package drops a dependency on a previously required package, should an install-time reminder be given to the user? I don't really want to add debconf clutter for such a trivial matter but it is probably not good to leave a potentially orphaned package around.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
