If it breaks, then yes. But what if the rdeps work, but perhaps with
limited functionality for the user interface only? (Which means that
any packages build-depending on it won't have any limitation.)

I think it would be ok to accept such limitations - but YMMV.

(Changing package names makes it harder for maintainers of such
packages then just to say to configure "if there is no readline,
build without")
