Shouldn't apt be happy with mate-terminal:amd64 and install steam
without pulling xterm in ?

Apparently not.
Wow, very useful answer. Thanks a lot !

Given that most packages are trivially small compared with disk space and memory these days, especially on gaming computers, the question itself is almost pointless. Just pull in the dependency and forget about it.
