What todo with upstream content in .noarch.rpm format?

I'm seriously thinking (actually time is the biggest problem) thinking 
about packaging gcompris:

This use assetml, which comes with a lot of data file with sounds for 
this (educational) software we have great sounds like "a" in many 
languages. Upstream distributes these soundpacks in .noarch.rpm format, 
and they are pretty clean rpms (just a bunch of files under 
/usr/share/assetml) so they could be dropped straight in our repo.

However we don't have any facilities for doing that so I tend to still 
create a spec file which will "rebuild" them, so that would be rpm2cpio, 
extract, re-rpm I guess any better ideas?

Thanks & Regards,
