My 2 cents worth: it depends on the sequences. If one is a long-established sequence, and the other is new or relatively new., probably only the newer one should have the other in its name. If the sequences are added at about the same time, putting it in both makes sense.

Regardless, the sequences should cross-reference each other. Any other sequence referenced elsewhere in a sequence should also be in the cross-refs (this rule is not always observed).

Subject: [seqfan] Style Guide: "Complement of ..."?

I want to add cross references to a pair of complementary sequences and I
find that, typically, there are two ways this is done:  it is noted in the
name; it is noted in the cross reference list.  Which is preferred, and
should the style guide reflect this preference?  For what it is worth, I
find including it in the name most helpful.  Perhaps both would be ideal?
