upgrade of selinux-policy-targeted doing recursive restorecon on NFS mounts a bad idea

I'm now doing an upgrade to 
selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-2.83 on FC3,
and it seems to be doing a recursive restorecon
on all the NFS mounts on the system - including
/home/boston, /mnt/redhat, etc.

I don't think this is a good idea at all! 
This single update of selinux-policy-targeted
is probably going to take all day, and I hope
the restorecon on NFS mounts as root is not 
going to harm other people's mounts of shared
NFS systems like /home/boston and  /mnt/redhat !

Restorecon in recursive mode should ignore NFS mounts -
or the spec file should weed out NFS mounts from the
restorecon command line.

Should I raise a bug on this ?
