The most common case is to make the file tags of a product independent 
of any Depends items. We're talking about product.type here, that's 
usually set to a fixed value like "application". Of course one can 
construct a case where product.type is dependent of some Dependent{} 
value. The above approach would then need to throw an error.
   All in all, I don't believe that it's worth the effort just to 
eliminate the need of listing dependencies.
