Best practise is, if packagers would know, how packaging and ENVRA works -
which seems not known to all packagers (independent whether Fedora or Red
Hat at this case).

My previous e-mail explains correct, why not bumping release of ENVRA is
broken in such a case (which also would automagically cause %changelog to
get silent rpmlint) and why it has to be fixed by Red Hat and why we at
EPEL can't fix or solve it completely. So if somebody does not understand
that, he/she shouldn't be a RPM packager at all, sorry.
