Yes, I thought about it. But there is no strict rule in Policy, just
recommendation. There are many other packages which do not conform to 8.1,
like: e2fslibs, svgalib, zlib, imlib, aalib, beecrypt, slang, cracklib...
Should I go on?

And last but not least: upstream name is t1lib. I do not like to change it
until it is really needed.

OTOH, if you provide me good arguments why I should change name of t1lib,
and good explanation why a new package, let's say rsplib, does not conform
to this rule, I will not insist anymore.
