Change Package Dependencies

Dear all

Is there any possibility to overrule the package dependencies without
modifying the package source?

Reason for asking: I do not need to have doc packages installed on all
of my servers.  But some packages simply insist on installing their
doc package too.

In /etc/apt/preferences, I marked the packages with Pin-Priority: -1
-- but is there another way too?

Thanks for any hints.
