Yes, it works for any package.

But what do you mean with "old"? That should not be used for new
packages or just that it is old? ;-)

It is a very old mechanism, introduced a couple of years in the
past. There were no Supplements at that time, that's why it's
done with a Provides. (The same is true for "split-provides", btw.)

Should I use "Provides: locale(festival:es)" or just "Supplements:
festival & namespace:language(es)"... that, if there is no black magic
hidden, should do the same but putting the metadata also in the RPM
package and without a bogus Provides?

You'd have to rewrite the "&" as "packageand()", of course.
But it still wouldn't work, as the "namespace:language(es)" isn't
magical enough. So please use the Provides for now...
