I don't quite understand what makes writing an external script and then
modifying it from the specfile better than just emitting the script
completely from the .spec in %prep, given that the script will usually
be just a few lines.

For a guideline, that's a too generic filename.
%{name} would be better.

Could possibly use %define __perl_requires %{buildroot}-filter-requires
(untested).  The double %% appears to be a typo.
