Well, nothing stops you from downloading directly pkgs from koji ? :-)
I guess that Cloud SIG just have these in -build tag as needed as
BuildRequires: , reason why they are not tagged for -testing or -release
(as not needed at runtime)

But if you have a look at koji/cbs, you can find/download directly.
Example for a particular openstack macros ENVR :
Searching for openstack-macros leads to plenty of links, including that
one :

There is a direct link but one can use `cbs download-build 30772` to
also directly fetch pkg if needed

That's at least a workaround for you
