Actually in the koji db there are listed rpm requirements.

http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/rpminfo?rpmID=228266 is an example of srpm Requires which are the same as BuildRequires in the spec.  The problem is that many times these requires are somewhat generic and can be serviced by multiple packages and/or rely on indirect BuildRequires that are pulled in from the direct BuildRequires or the minimal buildroot.

It is really quite difficult to get an accurate map of exactly which
packages will ultimately need your package to build.
