I think fixing the actual dependency issue would be unorthodox at this
point of release cycle as adding dependencies was not the root cause
for the bug even if existing somewhat unorthodox were. Better to just
the problem by reverting the semantics near the same as in v5.0 and
take this dependency discussion "offline" for the release work...
