I don't understand the point. As an upstream developper of CGAL¹, for example, 
I would prefere that the spec file for Fedora is the same as the one we use 
internally to generate development snapshots. Yes the resulting spec file is 
quite an advanced one, because of that. But if I can prove that I have 
written it, and can maintain it, what is the problem, from the FE point of 
view? The resulting RPMs are not bloated because of the complexity of the 
src.rpm file.
