The end goal is not just to have packages built on the
buildd -- and important goal for Debian, certainly, but not the only
one we have. As promoters of free software, we also are committed to
have packages build for our users, in a "real" environment, not just
a sterile, controlled. artificial "debian specific test"
Moving towards requiring all packages be built in such an
artificial test environment takes us further away from
ensuring the second goal is met.

not sure you understood what you thought I meant.
