Okay, so documenting this, as well as the naming standard (for the
toolchain and the packages) is what I was referring to. Or to be blunt:

If I wanted to package a sparc cross-compiler, what would I need to know
to do it properly in Fedora? Our written guidelines right now don't
cover it at all (as far as I know).

And yes, I know we have other cross toolchains, but this is the first
time anyone has wanted to package items in Fedora which are built from
those cross toolchains. I agree with your approach of having nothing in
the main repository other than simple testcases in the toolchain
packages, but I also don't have a problem with permitting these packages
to live in a separated location.
