Shared libs in non-standard locations



Section 4.3 of policy says nothing about the location of libraries.
Section 12 of packaging manual says nothing about the location of libraries

I would like to know what rules there are (if any) about shared libraries
in locations not mentions in /etc/ld.so.conf or what debian considers 
"standard". 

For an example of this discrepency, see Bug ##42399

the actual question is:
Should packages be allowed to have private shared libraries in 
/usr/lib/<package>, and if not, should they install in /usr/lib, or just
link statically to their own libraries?
