I veto this proposal, because the change log entries often involve
attributions. It's bad etiquette to remove credit for someone's contributions
from however long ago.
Given that the package itself should contain a full ChangeLog and that a
.spec file shouldn't really grow to huge sizes by including every single
alteration back to the dawn of time, it is not unreasonable to only
include changes for the last few revisions in a .spec file.
If the courtesy thing still irks you, add a note at the bottom saying
something like "full Changelog history can be found in
/usr/doc/foo-1.0/ChangeLog" or whatever.
