Does -devel package name only indicate "C" development packages?

I have a request to change the name of selinux-policy-devel to
"everywhere else in the distro -devel means just header files in c and not any
other development tools and we have several scripts that assume that's the case."
selinux-policy-devel contains interface files and tools required to build
selinux-policy. It also currently contains the man pages, which I can move to
the base package.
selinux-policy-devel has existed I believe since at least Fedora 5, and is
fairly well known as a package (Google Knowledge) I hesitate to change the
name of this package, but if Fedora Packaging guidelines or consensus requires
it, I will.
