RequiredCapability does not impact the
resolution algorithm per-se. It just captures the dependencies an
IU has onto other things.
The optional flag of a required capability is simply used by the
resolver to ignore a dependency that can not be satisfied.

forcing all dependencies to be "optional".
So I landed onto the RequiredCapability class, which describes how
things are resolved. However I didn't see in this class about
"optional" is defined. How is the optional behavior described at
this layer of p2 API?
