Exactly. Please mind that svl2-doc will be an Arch:all package (and 
don't forget the headers in libslv2-dev).

Maybe a suggests from the devel package (if slv2-doc contains API 
documentation) or a suggests from the slv2 package (if slv2-doc 
contains documentation for the programs in /usr/bin).

Yes, devel packages must have hard-coded dependencies to the 
corresponsing libraries.

No. Nobody should be forced to install the binaries just because he is 
installing an application that is linked against the library. the 
other way round will be handled automatically if the binaries in slv2 
are linked against the shared libslv2-9 library (what they should do).
