I was looking at 41.  Same thing.

Yes, use lintian-override !  lintian is a helper but not the rule :-)

By the way, I accepted use of versioned -dev since you explained your

I do agree to use the versioned -dev when these 2 -dev package are made
to be co-installable and useful in such shape.  This happens with major
libraries.  For this, it require us to do more than bumping number in
-dev package name.  See example:
