I would be more than happy to review amended mono packaging guidelines
as part of the Fedora Packaging Committee.

Discovery of mono like packages that are marked as arch specific, but
don't use gcc to build, is rather difficult and/or time consuming from
the script's point of view.  I'm still working on a method for packages
to 'opt-out' of the rebuilding, and it would be up to the maintainer to
make the informed decision that the package in question does not make
use of gcc at all in the build paths.
