Such a package could be tricky, since we cannot depend on rpm reading 
the files under /etc/rpm/macros* in some defined order, do we? But when 
doing it agnostic to ordering, it would be possible. Another way just 
from top of my head are guidelines that would require it.

Which mechanism did you mean and didn't see?
