Also for each upload we have 10 archs with the risk of buildd polluted
packages and one without? How does that help at all?

You reduce one risk by eliminating it from <10% of the uploads and
introduce a completly new and different risk on those 10%. No matter
how you look at it that is just silly.

If you replace the debs then the uploaded changes file (which gets
send out to the ML and is the only one publicaly archived by debian)
don't match the debs in the archive.

If you want to go the way of rebuilding debs then require seperate
changes files.
