Or if there's a lot of documentation, consider putting it into a
subpackage. In this case, it is recommended to use *-doc as the
subpackage name.

That could be strengthened, I suppose, though I imagine if someone
ignores the recommendation now they'd probably ignore the requirement in
the future.

It would also be easy to make rpmlint or fedora-review (or both)
complain about it.
