I don't think this belongs as a dependency of initramfs-tools. The initramfs-tools package won't fail to create an initramfs if dhclient is absent, it just won't succeed in creating an initramfs that is capable of configuring (currently ipv6) networking before pivoting root. That is not fundamental to the function of a generic initramfs and I think it's fine if initramfs-tools doesn't pull this in for you.
