Proposal to explicitly allow dos2unix

In guidelines in common errors section Packaging/Guidelines#Rpmlint_Errors there is the following phrase:

This error occurs because of DOS line breaks in a file. Fix it with sed
in the %prep section: %{__sed} -i 's/\r//' src/somefile -- DONT use
dos2unix, that can cause build fail on FC3.

Because FC3 is not supported for long time, I'm proposing to change it to:

This error occurs because of DOS line breaks in a file. Fix it in
the %prep section with sed: <code>sed -i 's/\r//' src/somefile</code>
or dos2unix.

Here also %{__sed} changed to simply sed to be consistent with other parts of guidelines and wiki mark-up added to separate sed command, but this is not the essential part of proposal.
