Something like this is in fact considered. Probably Ubuntu won't use
pbuilder itself since it is not the most efficient implementation

eliminate many FTBFS bugs due to polluted chroots.

Wouldn't those bugs just be indicative of an improperly packaged app or broken build system? I really don't see the point of using pbuilder to inefficiently work around a fixable problem. If they're not fixable (I don't see how this could be) perhaps we need a Build-Conflicts field.
