True, i.e. defect/bug.

Nope, these buildroots will carry different uids 
=> User2 cannot remove user1's buildroot.

Let me demonstrate it with one of your rpms:

# su -l user1
# rpmbuild -bi vtkdata.spec
# exit

# su -l user2
# rpmbuild -bb vtkdata.spec
+ rm -rf /var/tmp/vtkdata-5.0.1-4-root
rm: cannot remove `/var/tmp/vtkdata-5.0.1-4-root/usr/share/vtkdata-5.0.1/Data/cth.vtr': Permission denied
rm: cannot remove `/var/tmp/vtkdata-5.0.1-4-root/usr/share/vtkdata-5.0.1/Data/Particles.raw': Permission denied

With FE's current buildroot this case doesn't happen.

I don't see how working in a multiuser environment would qualify as a
corner case. Building for different target archs to me is a corner case,
but that's probably a matter of personal background.

The above situation above would easily happen if working in a team, e.g.
when developing an rpm.spec.
