Did I say the contrary ?

What I meant is that there is no way to make things mandatory so it
won't change from what is now.
People who wants to write an extensive changelog will and people who
don't want won't.

Btw IMHO changelog on the spec reflects change that happened to the
packaging (change in the spec) they do not reflect the change happened
to the software (changes documented in the changelog in the sources when
there is one).

But I think Michael Schwendt already made my point.
