I still don' think having gnome-control-center installed on Debian Xfce
(or any !gnome) installations is a good idea, to be honest. I personally
use network-manager-gnome nm-applet under Xfce because it doesn't
actually needs GNOME bits, so imho either the gnome-bluetooth recommends
should be dropped from network-manager-gnome, or the
gnome-control-center one dropped from gnome-bluetooth.

Or tasksel could stop installing recommends, like it was done before,
and people involved in the various tasks can handle the list explicitly.
