Currently a lot of typo3/cms-* packages have hidden dependencies on other typo3/cms-* packages, e.g. by using views and wizards defined in these packages. For example the Redirects module (typo3/cms-redirects) fails with an exception if typo3/cms-recordlist is not installed.

It should be checked where dependencies are still missing and should be declared explicitly in each Composer manifest.

take a look at https://github.com/georgringer/requirement_checker where I just check the use statements of all classes to know those dependenies. it does not take full namespace usages into account nor false negatives like hooks, ... but maybe a start
