The problem is that developers just don't do anything about it

Are there any more possibilites to reduce unwanted consequences
from such situations?

Automatic generation of tags based upon the ABI -- basically
the srcmd5 fingerprint approach I suggested.


https://docs.fedoraproject.org/ro/Fedora_Draft_Documentation/0.1/html/RPM_Guide/ch-dependencies.html#id662448

Those are just freeform strings that serve no purposes
with regard to ABI compatibility.

Should RPM capabilities help to manage specific software requirements?

They already do on a daily basis.


How should the available and really usable versions be determined for
application programming interfaces which will fit to a selected
application binary interface of a needed component?

That is a different category, which does not visibly happen in
practice, and which is unrelated to the three bugreports mentioned
earlier.
