Multiple file ownership allowed nowadays?

My package gtkhash can now build both against gtk2 and gtk3. I am about to package the two versions as gtkhash and gtkhash3, but both packages would share one file, /usr/share/gtkhash/gtkhash.xml. You can install both packages at the same time, at least here on F15 it works fine. However it is not allowed by the packaging guidelines: "Packages must not own files already owned by other packages."  I wonder if this rule is still needed. I know I'd loose backward compatibility with older rpm versions, but I don't want make a gtkhash-common package for only a single file. Can we allow multiple file ownership, at least when a file comes from the same srpm?
