I can't speak for Debian/Ubuntu, or texlive-dummy-opensuse,
but the intention of texlive-dummy-enterprise-linux is to
preclude unintended installation of el6 texlive packages
because of dependencies, not to prevent deliberate
installation of packages for which there are comparable
resources in TeXLive.
