Look at cxref's changelog. (apt-listchanges --all can list the changelog
from an uninstalled .deb.)

Now, actually the changelog is not all that verbose here, but the gist
of it appears to be that cxref contains .el files which need the
framework in emacsen-common to be installed correctly. emacsen-common
consumes a whole 78K of disk space once installed.
