 My understanding to reference
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingGuidelines#BuildRoot_tag is that if
buildroot tag is ignored then why to unnecessarily write them in spec files.

 reference to http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingGuidelines#.25clean

  Again reference to
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingGuidelines#BuildRoot_tag this cleaning
of buildroot is now implicit.

Sure that is why I suggest them. So its upto maintainer whether to accept above
3 changes or not.
