Well, Steve wrote lately about the $arch@b.d.o mails:
"AIUI, the <arch>@buildd.debian.org addresses have a ridiculously low S:N
ratio due to spam; moreover, they already receive build logs for each failed
package build, and are generally quite capable of figuring out the source of
a failure on their own, so receiving a second mail about a failure that's
still in their inbox isn't necessarily all that useful."

I think that people should choose theirselves what they think is the
best resource for them to find the needed information...  ;)
