Granted, UTF-8 glyphs can be abused as well; see %changelog in the following:

http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/rpms/perl-Convert-UUlib/devel/perl-Convert-UUlib.spec?revision=1.21&view=markup
http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/rpms/lzop/devel/lzop.spec?revision=1.14&view=markup

You even used two different glyphs for "fixed the license"!
