I would say it is.  I don't think the SourceURL page is there to be
enforced as law or gospel.  The main point of using that form of URL
is the downloads.sourceforge.net part, as opposed to dl.sf.net or one
of the various mirrors (which may change over time).

Packages that are part of an upstream project may not always have same
tarball name as the main project, so yeah, you'll have things like the
example you gave.  I help out with libgpod and gtkpod upstream.  Both
are under the same project space, so the URL for libgpod is

At least, that's my take on it.
