I have a python app that installs all its .py files in
${_datadir}/%{name}, and upstream thinks it's right. I thought it made
sense to put the files in %{py_sitedir}/%{name}, so I originally had a
patch to do this, but if upstream doesn't want it, I'm not really keen
on keeping it.

Is there any policy for this?

If those files are private to the app, as opposed to usable by
others as a library, then ${_datadir}/%{name} is a reasonable
private storage and I see no reason to diverge from upstream.
