This is playing with words. I'm sure that when the guideline was written lib
was intended as "some code in any language that can be shared". What is less
clear is the other shared components which are not code (resource files,
fonts, templates, etc) but there is no doubt at all in my mind on the code

Though your interpretation is one reason we keep refining guidelines to leave
no room for bad packager excuses.
