Suggests, yes, but Recommends to software in non-free shouldn't be there as they are forbidden by the policy https://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-archive.html#s-main If you find one, please file a bug so that it can be removed (either because the Recommends wasn't really supposed to be there, or by moving the package to contrib, if it really needs non-free software to work) -- Elena ``of Valhalla''
