I admit it is, because both you and I have mixed up the musescore-1.x
and musescore-2.0 packages in the course of our discussion.

No, musescore (>= 2.0) should not depend on any other soundfont package
-- just as it currently is. The Suggests relations to other soundfont
-providing packages should also be fine as they are.

Because musescore-soundfont-gm has been turned into a dummy package
that has "Depends: timgm6mb-soundfont" -- rightly so. But, if the
latter package is not in the archive, this dependency cannot be
satisfied, which in turn is a policy violation, and thus a release
-critical bug, ans thus avoids the whole package from entering testing.

Yes, it is in musescore-common (>= 2.0).

Yes, this has already happened for musescore (>= 2.0).

It's successor package, timgm6mb-soundfont, i.e. the one that musescore
-soundfont-gm (>= 2.0) depends on, is already among the suggested
packages for musescore (>= 2.0).
