The Fedora Core test3 include a freeze announcement. Refer to the

The spec cleanup that has been proposed doesnt count as a release
critical or must fix bug since it doesnt prevent any critical functionality.

Since the cleanup isnt critical, every change has a potential chance for
regression and taking into account that there are critical issues that
needs to be fixed in the same time, prioritizing the actual development
time to fix blockers over the smaller changes is important and thats the
process being followed here.
