Default rt2x00-modules-2.6.18-5-k7: should depend on the linux-image version used to build it

I agree that it might be desirable for module packages to be removed
along with the kernel they can be used with. However, if the modules
are built against an unpackaged kernel, this would then introduce an
incorrect dependency. Is there a policy on whether this use case should
be supported?

No, you could configure it with network-manager instead.
