I generally read team policies with an implicit "...as long as it 
doesn't conflict with the general Debian Policy".

Specifically, I read the "should" in above quote as "in most cases, but 
not a "must".

We have in the Javascript team an old practice of avoiding duplicate 
code: When code is same for Browsers and Nodejs, we ship the code in the 
libjs-* package and have that package "Provides: " the nodejs package.
