That would break expectations.

When installing a software package named python-foo, I would expect a
python package named foo in there, not a package named bar.

Dependencies between packages are best defined in distribution packages.
They solve dependencies since ages.

For Fedora, there is a policy for package naming. I'd assume the same to
be true for Debian.
