Well actually Debian packages have the ability to flag themselves as
essential, thus preventing their removal without dire warnings of doom
and gloom.

i    --\ bash                                              3.1-2
  Description: The GNU Bourne Again SHell
  Essential: yes
  Priority: required

On the other hand:

i    --\ grub                                              0.95+cvs20
  Description: GRand Unified Bootloader
  Priority: optional
