What do you think about Java packages adopting usage of weak dependencies?
An example: Dependencies declared as optional in POM files could be
translated by dependency generators to Recommends instead of Requires.

currently omit generating "Require"s on osgi bundles that are declared as
optional. Generating some "Recommend"s instead might be ideal.
