The release tags in %changelog entries won't match the actual %release tags.

x%{?dist}.1 and x.1%{?dist} are ambiguous.

The same applies to the current practice: The guidelines mandate using
"x" instead of x%{?dist}.

IMO, the current convention of using x in %changelog entries instead of
x%{?dist} is a mistake.
