We're supposed to.  The review for deltarpm says that the reviewer
checked the tarball against upstream:
  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=202033

This is what's in the current spec:
"""
URL: http://gitorious.org/deltarpm/deltarpm

Source: %{name}-git-20090729.tar.bz2
"""

This doesn't follow the Guidelines but doesn't look as bad as you say.
There is a public source repo on gitorious.  jdieter has commit access
there.  It seems like all that's needed is the comment that says:

# Generate source by doing:
# git clone -r FFFFFFFFFF http://gitorious.org/deltarpm/deltarpm
# tar -czf deltrpm-%{version}.tar.gz deltarpm
