Hm, patterns-microos-onlyDVD seems containing kernel-firmware. It looks specific to MicroOS, so I don't know what's the purpose, though... In the normal installation, kernel-firmware is chosen either via the recommends from kernel-default (or equivalent), or from patterns-media, as far as I look though the packages So, install-recommends is mandatory in that case.
