I've been thinking about proposing a Guideline that says
"header files should not be placed in noarch packages. Header files can
contain architecture specific bits.  We currently do not have an
automated method for detecting whether header files are different on
different arches. When architecture specific information is encoded in
header files and the wrong architecture headers are installed, subtle
bugs can be introduced.  These bugs can be made worse because the
problems can occur and disappear unpredictably, based on which
architecture the noarch package was built on."

Some specific example could be clarify the issue, because it is istintive to put noarch
the header package.
