I would suggest, at most, adding a lintian warning for this post-woody. 
If policy is amended(debatable) and enforcement needs to be more strict,
one could then change this to an error condition.  However, a single
maintainer would be responsible for multiple instances of an shlib in
most, if not all cases, so it would be at his descretion to properly
handle this.
