My two cents:
We should let core makedepend on extra.
We should not let anything makedepend on AUR (I know we currently have
optdepends on AUR, but I don't have an opinion on that).
If possible, we should avoid makedepends from core/extra to community,
but I don't know if this would cause a lot of problems. It is
definitely better to have a package maintained in community than
unmaintained in extra.
