RPMs in FC13 with wrong or missing release

There are a number of packages in the FC13 repos that have wrong or
missing release IDs.  For example: 
which is in fact intended for evolution-2.28, and not for
evolution-2.30, which is included in FC13.  (And so it doesn't work)

There are a lot of such packages and many packages with no release ID at
all, like:
too many to be included in an email of reasonable length, but here is a
        $ wc -l *
         1416 rpm.ALL		Number of RPMs on the system
          220 rpm.fc12		Those with ".fc12." in their name 
           17 rpm.none		Those with neither ".fc12." nor ".fc13."

Is this harmful?  Should it be reported to the Fedora Bugzilla?

Thanks - jon
