Might be. But maybe we should figure out a text to state that o-s-s
is now really needed for some packages, perhaps enumerate those that
have it in bookworm and hint at that there are more coming in trixie,
then try to get that added to the release notes while not too many
people have already updated.

I think these are orthogonal; Recommends definitely fully suffices
on the package level, but docs are usually still helpful (plus we
can tell people to just RTFM ☻☺).
