Hi,

just a question, do we have a use case somewhere, where only a src.rpm should
get build, but no binary packages ?

yes, ATLAS:

http://math-atlas.sourceforge.net/

It is an optimized BLAS/LAPACK library, useful for numerical
computation. The optimization is based on running many different tests
during the build, and the performances are CPU dependant (depends on the
L1/L2/L3 cache size, etc...). This means it is not possible to build it
as an rpm, but a src.rpm is still useful (since the user only has to run
rpmbuild bla bla).

cheers,

David
