IMHO the most important property of compat packages is not that they
have a devel conterpart or not, but that we clearly tell packagers "this
bit is not to be used and will be removed mid-term". Restricting the
compat naming to link-only packages will only make this removal process
harder, as a lot of stuff will move to packages with no clear EOL
