Absolutely!  I don't even know how to make it a hard dependency :-)
It is as optional as can be.

Sure, this is exactly what I meant in that message¹, so I wondered why
you didn't like it (apparently it was misunderstanding).  I proposed to
make 'magit-popup' package (it will depend only on 'emacs-dash' library)
and to add it to the propagated-inputs of 'guix' package.  So I'm going
to send the patches for this.
