> The move to rpm5 is rather to standardize packaging

In fact it will only split package format among distributions removing any hope of reconciliation. Or do you hope that Fedora will switch to RPM5 also? Speaking for openSUSE, it values compatibility with Fedora and will not switch either.

What even worse is that RPM5 breaks not only spec files compatibility, but also makes binary formats incompatible.
