I haven't looked at the rpm source at all yet, but I think the
buildroot is one that can be "fixed" just using a macro.

If the packaging committee wanted to make a standard buildroot and
enforce it have the build systems set %buildroot. Then all the
BuildRoot values in spec files could just be removed (at the very
least they should be irrelevant since they will be overridden
according to the comments in /usr/lib/rpm/macros).
