Why would that be 'tidy'?

Just use two colons as usual for things exported from your data package, and
export everythng that your code package uses from it. The ':::' idiom is not
to be used across package, ie don;t use in package B to access content from
A. Which is what R CMD check is telling your here: "don't do this".
