I don't deny software projects their occassional user-level

Nonsense. The .changes (and thus rpm's %changelog) is intended for
the end user that installs packages, not the developer. The information
should be displayed in YaST/zypper, so the user can make an informed
decision if he wants to install/update a package.

Nonsense :). Updates for factory are rejected if they do not have a
entry, so we are required to add things like 'remove obsolete build
requirement' or 'compile fix' to the changelog that users could not care
about. This is even documented somewhere in the wiki.

So what? That's a local policy thing from Factory. Factory is not
the build service.

The policy is that packages that get out to customers and have different
version/release must have different changelogs, so that a custumer can
see what has changed.

That's not the case though as automatic rebuilds don't leave a
changelog entry.
