Accusing me of such things, instead of attempting to work w/ me, will
not get you anywhere.  I had not intended to waste the -qa people's time
w/ this; I was merely going to respond to the bug reports.  However,
after this, I don't see the benefit of me wasting *my* time on this.

Figure out what you what, and file a proper bug.  Don't give me
hand-waving about things possibly breaking, and recommending I make
changes that force things upon people.  If you feel -source packages
should have recommends/depends upon their associated -utils packages,
bring up mass-filing on d-d and see where it gets you.  If you feel
ndiswrapper-modules should have a versioned depend on -utils, file a
proper bug w/ proof that the versioning is actually needed.  If you feel
the whole kernel package/module package system is fragile and in need of
improvements, by all means start coming up w/ a better system.
