So far I couldn't reproduce this on Wheezy (aptitude 0.6.8.1-2) with a
minimal setup: debootstrap (actually xen-tools' xen-create-image),
turning off install Recommends automatically, then "aptitude install
plasma-netbook kde-plasma-netbook kde-plasma-desktop".
The result was sane and what I would have had expected on our precise
# aptitude remove plasma-netbook
The following packages will be REMOVED:
0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 to remove and 0 not
Need to get 0 B of archives. After unpacking 996 kB will be freed.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
kde-plasma-netbook : Depends: plasma-netbook (>= 4:4.8.4) but it is
not going to be installed.
The following actions will resolve these dependencies:
Remove the following packages:

I though suspect that there still may be relevant differences between
a full-blown workstation setup and a minimal installation with just
three metapackages and their dependencies being installed.
