I thought they existed to address > situations where the buildd _can't_ build a package. binNMUs exist mainly to rebuild a source package (which has already been built), where the resulting dependencies change (e.g. a library transition, where libfoo1 was changed to libfoo2, but the build-dependency libfoo-dev is still the same). If a package can't be built in the first place, it's most likely a problem in the package itself, and would need a new source-ful upload. The situation, that e.g. a build-dependency isn't present yet (e.g. you upload foo and bar and bar needs foo as build-dependency, but bar gets tried first), you don't need a binNMU, since bar wasn't ever built in the first place.
