Should extra pkgs depends on community pkgs?

Hi,

I found some packages, in extra, which depends on some community's pkg.
Some examples:
spamassassin (extra) depends on perl-mail-dkim(community)
banshee (extra) depends on dbus-sharp-glib(community).

I'm not against keeping some makedepends or the optdepends in community, I'm talking about depends (which are in the depends array).

What is the official guideline about that?

If they are errors, I'm happy to report these every time I encounter it, but if this is a rule, please tell officially that community repo (entirely) is a dependency (so, must be enabled) of extra.

Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.

I edited the first post adding the two bug reports I made for what I found.

Like the Integrity Check script that posts to arch-dev-public once a week....

Re: Should extra pkgs depends on community pkgs?

In this case, is it still necessary to file bugs against these packages?
