b) There isn't too much flexibility at naming the debug packages, the
name always is <source_package_name>-debug*. Renaming also the source
package you allow the debug packages of two library versions with
different sonames to be also installed at the same time.

The proper fix for this is to create separate debuginfo packages for
each shared library package, not renaming the source package.

What do you mean with "create separate debuginfo packages"?
I create a debug package through the "%debug_package" macro... that
selects the name without asking:

%debug_package \
%global __debug_package 1\
%package debuginfo\

You mean creating the debug packages without using the macro? That has
the problem that it forces the packager to follow the changes in the
macro (in < 11.0 only -debuginfo packages were created, now there are
-debuginfo and -debugsource, tomorrow...).
