Yeah there are any number of ways to do it. Multiple distros are doing it via
other tooling sitting on top of rpm, that's an entirely valid route and already
proven route. Other options include having rpm execute some hook to pull data
from an outside source into the spec (and yes putting that modified version of
the spec into an src.rpm because that's what really was packaged). Etc.
Lets just say that my motivation for implementing something special primarily
for Fedora (because everybody else is already doing it one way or the other) is
not sky-high because a) others clearly manage without rpm modifications b)
Fedora is pathetically bad at implementing new rpm features anyway.
