That's not really cleaning up, that's enforcing your own cosmetic 
preferences. Whereas you're perfectly legitimate to manage your own spec 
files the way you want, this is slightly more ennoying for files shipped 
in those packages, notably the one generated from spec files through 
herein documents (for instance, apache, logrotate, cron files, etc...)

I'd rally prefer to have a bit more consistency here, not depending 
about individual maintainer preferences. Of course, if I'm reacting 
here, it's because everyone know than tab sucks :P
BOFH excuse #382:

Someone was smoking in the computer room and set off the halon systems.
