No. But as Hanno pointed out yesterday, it is good practice to specify 
all *direct* dependencies:

The Zope2 package is an exception because it represents the Zope 2 
platform and ships with a KGS. So direct dependencies on packages Zope2 
also depends on should not be specified if Zope2 is specified as dependency.

I thought that was consensus, but if you don't agree I'm fine with 
further discussions.
