My apologies for not making it clearer. What I meant to say is this:

Suppose I have a package XYZ that requires FUSE. Is it possible that the
“FUSE” dependency can be satisfied by either winfsp-fuse or dokan-fuse?

If that is not possible it looks like we would have to have winfsp-sshfs
or dokan-sshfs, etc. which IMO is less desirable.
