You really don't have to worry about distributions, packagers will package 
with every optional dependency as possible, and as long as they are listed at 
the end of the configuration step, they will notice them and include them. 
This is why we often get the complain that Calligra installation is bloated. 
Personnaly, I think it is ok.

In any case, new hard dependencies need to be discussed and announced on the
