Who has been perpetrating this myth? It's idiotic.

The objective is not to create Debian packages that build in an
artificial environment. The objective is to create Debian packages
that build on any Debian host that is running the same release.

The worst thing we could possibly do, short of never building the
packages, is to build them all in an artificial environment. Since the
buildds are by their nature artificial, it falls to the maintainer to
build the package on a real-world system.
