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.
