That opens up a new options:

6) Turn on direct use of 'debian/rules build-arch' on the autobuilders
   for all packages building arch and indep packages in unstable and
   experimental immediately, with no fallback if the target does not
   exist; requires a corresponding update to Policy and mass updates to
   fix packages that fail to build as a result.

That would make at most 667 packages instantly buggy, 4% of the archive.
