I think it is a good guideline if possible.  When the name makes sense.
package 'sendmail' makes sense to have a sendmail init.d script.  There
are a lot of examples though of package <name> that has a daemon
component named <name>d.  Maybe do a warning if the init script isn't
%{name} || %{name}d  ?
