mawk-script-but-no-mawk-dep

Packages that use mawk scripts must depend on the mawk package. If they don't need mawk-specific features, and can just as easily work with gawk, then they should be awk scripts instead.

In some cases a weaker relationship, such as Suggests or Recommends, will be more appropriate.
