Re: why allow broken packages to get all the way to mirrors?

Any numbers where you can proof your claim? Developers are required to test
the packages before upload, and I havent noticed any uninstallable package

This cannot happen, what do you mean? Uploads are integrity checked.
Besides, thats what unstable is for, a package does not propagate to testing
or stable it has bugs.
