I think the REJECT-FAQ  will give you already some answers. I don't
think that you convinced Joerg that there are ugly meta packages needed
for coexistence of development packages... Probably he won't oppose just
dropping the 2 meta packages and keeping the versioned development
packages though, but you'll have to ask (or try) as I am not Joerg :-)
