If the package is needed:
$ sudo apt-get install mate-system-tools
The issues with mate-system-tools, I have are:
o not well tested inside Debian
o not needed on enterprise sites (they are useless with
LDAP, Kerberos, etc.).

Suggests: in mate-desktop-environment-extras, but that does not make a
change for the installation procedure and won't be much appreciated by
the Debian release team either, I guess.
I'd say, we should compensate this via documentation, how about
helping out with improving  and mentioning mate-system-tools there?
