-doc, -examples sub-packages creation question

I've pack library ne7ssh 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=521909 .

History in two words:

It contain 6 examples files and Makefile to built it.

I've package it into ne7ssh-examples sub-package.

Michael Schwendt say what it should not be separate sub-package, and 
right point me what other documentation have minor size and candidate to 
-doc sub-package. I done that. But for right dependency include Require: 
ne7ssh-devel, without that examples filed to built. It was also treated 
as wrong. I wasn't agree with solution place all docs into -doc but 
examples in -devel. I think it is incorrect. I also treat presents of 
source files to end-user with known result - missing build dependency is 
not correct maintainer decision. Also I agree what -devel dependency in 
-doc too is not best...

So, is there any guidelines, policy or something else on this case?

With best wishes, Pavel Alexeev aka Pahan-Hubbitus.
