I wouldn't.  I don't keep tabs on every package that my packages depend
on.  One of them could be orphaned and I would never know.

No; I haven't investigated it.  That's why I am asking to let those
maintainers decide.  Thinking up yet one more way to make the decision

just tell the maintainers, and give them the option.
