frameworks data packages and their relationship to the lib

When doing the first patch of new data packages I noticed that for
some reason some/most frameworks actually have the following:

libfoo Depends: libfoo-data (=${binary:Version})

Is there an actual reason for this being binary rather than source or
was it just an oversight?

While that doesn't usually matter in Ubuntu, in Debian such
relationship will make the package not binNMUable, so is an RC bug.
Please use source version.
