I hope so. There were no strict arguments against using that

Just to summarize:

%{_libdir}/libfoo.so.N*		gets packaged to libfooN
%{_libdir}/libfoo-X.Y.so.N*	gets packaged to libfoo-X.Y_N

(e.g. if the part before ".so.N*" ends with a digit separate the
library's major version with an underscore).

Both versions have a "Provides: shared-library-package" to help
identifying the disposable-if-not-depended-upon packages.
