And what is considered the best way to share the architecture–independent
headers between M-A: same -dev packages?

Install them in all packages, and let dpkg handle the conflicts? I still
don’t feel very confortable doing so, and it would cause an increase in
the archive size. Or ship them in a separate Arch: all -dev-common package,
which all the other -dev packages depend on? This would ensure a single
copy of the headers is present in the archive, but it would also add yet
another binary package per library to the Packages file…

Resistance is futile, you will be garbage collected.
