Yes, known thing. Sub-packages usually create a reference to a main package.
And then it's hard to not mention the package %{name} or program name.

With "postgresql" (albeit not limited to postgresql) the added difficulty
is that the main package contains only parts of the suite. The server files
are in another package. Else the main package could be have the summary:

  Advanced Object-Relational database management system using SQL

Yeah, have fun with finding multiple summaries that describe the
sub-packages then. ;)
