[Fedora-packaging] Static-only library: clarification

I'm currently reviewing a request for Telepathy-Qt4, which currently
only provides a static library:


It seems to me there are two different options:
- rename package to telepathy-qt4-static -- might cause administrative
hassle if and when upstream enables dynamically-linked libraries
- keep it as before, and just leave the main package empty. Make
-devel virtually Provides: -static.
  Should the -doc subpackage depend on -devel? Should it be called
-devel-doc or -static-doc, or just -doc?
