Your sentence is not clear. There are different cases IMO:
The original bug report is indeed far from drawing a complete picture. Thanks for fleshing this out, your cases seem to cover very well what I had in mind.

- the binary packages are versioned and change regularly, the source
  package should not change regularly and thus use a different name
  (example: source "linux-2.6" and binary "linux-image-*")
Yes, still for something like libfooabcbar27 it would be more reasonable to name the source libfooabcbar instead of abc.

Kind regards
