Koji likes to know the NVR it is building before it starts building it. This
allows Koji to mark the build as in progress. It also allows Koji to detect
nvr conflicts early (rather than at the end of the build).
If the resulting build does not match this NVR then that is pretty big
I too have run into this quirk. It is not that difficult to remake the srpm
with the right dist tag before submitting.
Indeed if there is a reason which there clearly is then its fine. As
you say a quick
rpm -Uvh && rpmbuild -bs --define 'dist .el5' to the rescue.
