I skip the rest, you have good points, but I still remember what I do.
Of course I can't find a reference supporting me in the Debian
documentation right now, and I can't be bothered to search mailing lists

Regarding the quoted line, we are arguing about definitions. To me the
relationship between apt-get and dpkg is not one that makes me call the
one a front-end to the other. For you it is. Not a problem.
