That may have been the case a while ago, but now if you have a .so symlink in 
your -devel package, it will have a proper file level requirement on the arch 
specific -libs (or base) package that the symlink points to.  If you have 
both elfutils-devel.x86_64 and elfutils-libs.x86_64 and elfutils-libs.i386 
and tried to upgrade just elfutils-libs.x86_64 and elfutils-devel.i386 it 
would fail.  elfutils-devel.x86_64 would have a file requires on the soname 
that is only provided by elfutils-libs.x86_64 of the matching version.
