Default release of subpackage with version different from main rpm


I guess there are some packages of which subpackage rpms have versions
which are different from those of the main rpm.
For example, on rawhide perl has 4:5.8.8-32.fc8 EVR and its subpackage
perl-ExtUtils-MakeMaker has 0:6.30-32.fc8 EVR.

On such case are there any policy for release number? For perl currently
the main perl rpm and its subpackages have the same release number.
However in other rpms the case may happen that only the version of
main rpm will be bumped where the version of its subpackage won't change.
In that case usually we want to switch the release number of main rpm
to 1%{?dist}, however if its subpackage has different version the release
number of the subpackage usually can't be back to 1%{?dist}. How should
we treat this case?
