The existing use case for using the build target is that packages

I've been excited for a while¹ about letting packagers (along with
other test contributors) add tests to a git tree analogous to dist-git.
"test-git", I guess. I imagine 'fedpkg clone' being changed to check
out both trees into a common directory, although there are a lot of
possible implementations. I know you're just talking about whitelists
at this point, but perhaps that could be the first step?
Another thing to consider — if you look at a buildSRPMFromSCM task,
there are parameters like Build Tag and SCM URL — and the the git url
should² include commit hash, even. I was _already_ wondering if we
could find some way to include this in the RPM header, along with the
koji task ID. This would probably be less disruptive than my
ditch-the-dist-tag suggestion. :)
