Requirements for a -devel package: are these written down?

I got a BZ for a package I maintain from someone who needs multilib
support without using Mock:
I found myself asking what the requirements are for a -devel package. In
general, do we support this in -devel libs or not? On IRC, I think I've
learned that the answer is "yes", but ....
.... this also made me realize that I really don't know what other
requirements we may have for -devel packages, I wondered if everyone
building -devel packages is providing multilib support, and I wondered
if we need some way to detect conflicts among headers for multiple
architectures. In this case, the problem was a conflict in the size of
#define XERCES_SIZEOF_LONG 4
#define XERCES_SIZEOF_LONG 8
Are there other requirements for -devel packages that I should be aware
of? Is there something I should read?
