I made some minor corrections, e.g. using example.com instead of foo.org and 
links to the mentioned NamingGuidelines sections. I also added a section 
about the correct sourceforge.net URL, afaik it is not documented anywhere 
else, and a section why using %{version} in SourceX: is good. I hope this is 
ok. :-)

I noticed, that in the section titled "When Upstream uses Prohibited Code" 
there is not mentioned, that the URL of the original tarball must be included 
in the generate-tarball.sh script, or, that it also must download it, e.g.

curl http://www.example.com/files/libfoo-$VERSION.tar.gz | xzvf 

Also, one could argue, that the script must always be 
named "generate-tarball.sh" (or whatever name is appropriate) because then 
QA-scripts could automatically use them.
