Yeah, understandable.  I had created an account and still didn't see
any obvious way to add a comment.  I may just be incredibly dense
today. :)

As far as rpm goes, I'm pretty sure it will happily try to process a
spec file written in various encodings, but the results won't likely
be sane or consistent.  For Fedora, the ascii/utf8 requirement is a
sanity check for packagers so that if someone else edits a spec file
they can be assured that it is either ascii or utf8.
