It is ok to omit some.
For example, ActiveRecord supports many database adapters, but it is
tested just against Sqlite3, since the other databases are not that easy
to setup (but there is BZ to run the test suite also with PG).
There is for example Tilt templating engine, which supports many
backends and not everone is in Fedora yet. But as soon as they are
introduced into Fedora, they should be enabled, therefore it is good to
comment the .spec file appropriately.
The tolerable degree is best to discuss with reviewer, if you are
unsure. There is not definitive answer, but the less you omit, the better.
