I think mostly this:
* Use ustream sonames and lintian suggested package names
  (unless it is useless renaming, i.e. keep the name if the current
  Debian package has the same soname).

* If possible mark eo symbols specially in debian symbols e.g.
  1.15.1-0+eo+1, to allow us to note if packages use them.

* Try to find out what else is considered unstable and simply do not
  ship it if possible. (C++ bindings?)

If there is a core efl library on which every other efl library
depends (directly or indirectly) we could use a Breaks on this package
instead of the virtual one.
