It's a problem that there is a separate list of MIR criteria that is
different than the older official list. Your list is not even linked
to from the official MIR requirements and process pages.

Also, even your page says that C++ libraries can simply use
dh_makeshlibs -V   which is more or less what Debian Policy 8.6 says.
