is there something planned to handle dependencies in package.el?

Only in the sense of "would be cool if someone worked on that", AFAIK.

1) Prevent (or warn) deleting a package if it is already used by another
package as dependency.

2) Store a list of packages installed explicitely (not as dependency)
and provide an autoremove function such as apt-get autoremove.

#2 was discussed a bit not too long ago.
