I would generally expect these in the following order:

1. Not be required to pass additional arguments to rpmbuild to build the
base product.

2. Be required to edit the spec file to enable options not part of the
base product (i.e. mysql support, etc)

I have yet to see a spec file which includes everything by default and
requires me to disable things I don't want.
