Here's how I see things (which I believe is close if not identical to how it
works on Debian):

Recommended = default on.
Suggested = default off.
The user can customize it to have both on or both off.

And in both cases, removing a package with only a soft dep should not remove
the dependent package (except if an option to treat them as hard deps is
set).
