we have the rule that a readme.suse or suse.tar.bz2 should be prefixed

that said it is not the smartest idea that many people call their
patches "gcc-4.3.diff". please prefix your patches atleast with the
package name.
I think this rule should either be dropped or enforced. I disagree about the usefulness of this rule in general.

so it is not useful to install multiple src rpms conflict free at the
same time?

That's much easier to achieve with a reasonable rpm config. Eg.
  echo "%_topdir $HOME/packages" >>~/.rpmmacros
  echo "%_sourcedir %_topdir/SOURCES/%name" >>~/.rpmmacros
  mkdir ~/packages/{SPECS,SOURCES,RPMS,SRPMS}
would be a good starting point.
