-devel packages get bloated Requires, not BuildRequires. Or if they're
not there, other packages in a lot of cases need bloated BuildRequires
in order to only accomplish also unnecessarily bloating the resulting
binaries/libs, see below.

... and that you have to put .la files into main packages (which is
adding untracked dependencies) and you slow down module loading...
...and in many cases, end up unnecessarily bloating linkage of
binaries/libs in main packages too, making things like soname changes
even more painful than they already are...
