Excellent. That's what I was looking for.

No, it is not right for me. The BuildArch issue depends on the RPM version and not from from distro version. It is simply bad style, IMHO, defining
in the SPEC file something that depends from the "distribution" (in the large sense not only fedora). I never see
this style in RHEL package (appart some little package for the rpm keys ecc). Ok is SUSE yes but, again, i don't like define a dependency based on
a "distro" version, if possible anyway.
