Please check yourself:
	apt-cache show texlive | grep Depends
and you will get:
	Depends: texlive-latex-recommended (>= 2016), texlive-fonts-recommended (>= 2016), texlive-latex-base (>= 2016)
That means you would get
This is not comparable to any scheme we ship in Debian.

Debian repackages TeX Live to comply with Debian packaging requirements.
