Caja should definitely have gvfs-backends in Recommends: field.

However, I am not sure if we can get this into jessie. I just prepared  
an upload for a related bug fix in mate-desktop-environment (#776698,  
see [1]). I will try to get a dependency for  
mate-desktop-environemt-core into jessie that adds gvfs-backends to  
Dependency: field.

If the fix for #776698 gets accepted by the Debian release team, I  
think this issue will be satisfyingly solved for jessie.

After the freeze, we should add gvfs-backends to Recommends: field for  
Caja, so leaving this bug open and not merging it into #776698
