Fair enough. I wasn't really suggesting any option (or the absence of
it), but point taken.
To be honest, I'd go even further: just like we got rid of %clean

rpmbuild could just assume that if no %prep section is present, then it
should just use %autosetup, with a certain set of options agreed upon.
