I'm not sure I understand the question. I think you are asking about
general-purpose, third-party-maintained development tools.

If so: yes, the recommendation is that third-party-maintained software
should not be bundled, but instead packaged for general use in a
separate Debian package. That's what the document at the above URL is
discussing; it includes a link to the relevant Debian Policy section.

If you mean something different, can you clarify?
