Let me (re)iterate that the "golden rule of packaging" is trumped if:
1.  following it violates packaging guidelines
2.  upstream interface is stooopid.

re: static linking.  This is a valid use-case for keeping .la files, but these
need to be packaged separately in a -static (sub)package.  But you had already
stated (in comment #13) "I'm not sure it is worth the hassle of going through
creating all those -static packages.  We could just drop the libneon.a ...", in
which case, this is moot.

In non-static cases, packages that depend on .la presence for building, are,
imo, broken, and can/should be fixed.  I'll take the bait and look at subversion
and see how hard it is to fix.
