You may be remembering bullseye? After quite a lot of wrangling, we got 
a short note added to the release notes[0] and installation guide[1] 
both of which basically pointed to the wiki[2].

I don't recall any discussion about bookworm release notes; I think if 
you'd have asked me I would have said that Recommends: should be enough 
for most cases!

I don't feel inclined to try and get a change into the release notes, 
since it was a lot of effort for bullseye, but happy to eyeball a patch 
if someone else feels keen. Sorry.
