[Rpm-maint] Section end markers

I went through the bug #564613 [1] and now I am considering add section end
markers to rpm spec syntax. I would add only optional end markers to preserve
backward compatibility i. e. if the end marker is not used then the end of
a section is where the next section starts. So the parsing of the spec without
end markers would be same as it is now. But before doing a change like this
I want to know opinion and get comments from a wider audience.

The similar problem to the one described in the bug #564613 [1] is also in
the bug #1315813 [2] and I also saw some requests for adding end markers on
our irc channel.
