dist-upgrade: why "remove"?

I did a long-delayed apt-get dist-upgrade yesterday.  I was waiting until
packages I frequently use had been removed from the "will be REMOVED" list.

gparted was still on the "will be REMOVED" list and really was removed.

As an experiment, I entered "apt-get install gparted" ... expecting apt to
complain and abort.  Instead, it installed gparted and two libraries.

Hmmm.  Why didn't the dist-upgrade just upgrade gparted as it did with many
other packages?

Just curious.
