The spec has this comment:

# We require release notes to make sure that they don't get dropped during
# upgrades, and just because we always want the release notes available
# instead of explicitly asked for

I do believe this rational came from Jeremy Katz when I took over
fedora-release and we split out the release notes from that package.

I would certainly entertain revisiting this issue.
