I don't think we want people who are confused by empty %doc to maintain
RPM packages ;)

Real packaging bugs are hopefully rare and can be dealt with one at a
time via bugzilla.  "Potential packaging bugs" like using ../man/foo*
instead of ../man/foo.gz, which are not a problem with
redhat-rpm-config, and purely stylistic issues are IMHO not worth
worrying about at all.

There are 6316 open bugs against Fedora right now and the discussion
(and likely disagreement) about stylistic issues with no functional
impact does not noticeably help fixing the real bugs nor developing new
features.
