I think that Policy 8.2 is fully applicable to your package then. It
is a MUST directive so your unwillingness to allow multiple versions
of your library to coexist does not affect the violation.
Following 8.2 you only have 2 choices: Split the package or provide
only static libaries and live with the wasted space. Otherwise the
packages is RC buggy.
