(section 7.2 for definition of Suggests and Recommends). And of course,
all this matter only if yum, PackageKit, etc. know about these
suggested/recommended packages and have some way how to deal with them.

these soft-dependencies, or they will just select for installation all
packages on which the selected package(s) Depends and then nicely ask
user whether she wants to install also suggested/recommended packages.
