This is a problem with all mark-up, defining the boundaries for
invisible CDATA whitespace.

But specifically for indentation in %description, I could likely
left trim (and right trim) all the lines in %description
(and likely %changelog) in a matter of hours.

That's one way of clarifying what is CDATA and what is markup,
nuke it according to a rule.

With all the usual disabler and customization baggage to
"Have ityour own way!" that is invariably expected of rpm, sigh ...
