You're wrong. :)

Even though the CLA is a contract between contributors and Fedora, it
explicitly grants rights to Red Hat _and_ all recipients of the
Contributed works (aka Fedora).

To me, this seems like more of a documentation issue, and less of a "the
license on spec files is now FOO" issue, since the CLA already has that
covered.
