However I think it is kind to ask will you install bin when someone install like gtk+ or glibc with guix package -i <some library package>.

I appriciate when I use guix package -i epiphany, guix would recommend additional packages hicolor-icon-theme and adwaita-icon-theme not installed.
And when install fonts, fc-cache is needed.
