Perhaps I missed it (the start of this thread was some time ago, and I'd
have to hunt through the archives), but I don't see anything in this
thread which quotes anything other than libpkg-guide.

In general I think there should be room for sensible maintainers to do
sensible things even if, say, they don't necessarily fit into a rigid
naming pattern. There's a fine line between specifying best practice for
those who don't know better and limiting the discretion of those who do.
