True. But I'll just explain why I'll not be doing that myself.

I made my original comment to ask for a reference to the documentation
the OP had read (and point out why removing a package had no immediate

(Frequently, OPs don't seem to think of posting error messages,
specific symptoms, courses of action taken etc etc and these things
have to be solicited from them before problems become tractable.
On occasions it's like pulling teeth.)

Floris kindly found a possible reference which also seemed to me to be
a likely candidate (the OP hasn't confirmed or otherwise).

I looked at it with a critical eye and found some errors and
ambiguities. However, I'm not a Gnome user, so I have no idea whether
"There are four options to install GNOME in Debian:" is true, or
whether there's, say, another option that most Gnome users now use,
but no one has bothered to document.

So the most I could do is set up an account just to write "This list
entry may mislead you" on the page.

Sorry not to be more obliging.
