There have been some complaints about them.  I don't personally think that 
they're quite intolerable and the noise level should decrease over time as the 
spell checker dictionaries used by Enchant evolve, but if there's clear 
consensus that they cause more harm than good, they can be disabled in future 
default rpmlint package configs.  Until then, you can do for example:

# Disable Enchant spell check:
echo 'setOption("UseEnchant", False)' >> ~/.config/rpmlint

# ...and if you want the internal feeble spell checker msgs gone too:
echo 'addFilter("spelling-error")' >> ~/.config/rpmlint
