Certainly not as is, since it would satisfy dependencies immediately for
all packages that should get dconf installed instead.

Maybe by splitting the backend in a separate package. And even this way,
it needs to be enabled by hand so I’m not sure it’s the best course of
action. The GConf GSettings backend is not really well supported
upstream, and the most likely result is that people have broken settings
and don’t understand how.
