I doubt there will be any “choosing” involved.

You are mistaken in thinking that Firefox is “tied to meta packages”. ubuntu-desktop Recommends it, but does not Depend on it.

So if you remove Firefox, USC doesn’t tell you what else it will remove (it’s just branding and Ubuntu integration stuff). But if you try to remove something like, say, libgtk2.0-0, USC gives you the laundry list of things that will also be removed if you continue.
