I've seen packages that don't fail until the very end of the build.
This can waste a lot of buildd time, especially on very large packages.
So yes, as the maintainer, it may be your problem to fix, but failing to
test packages that as a result fail on the buildds won't make the buildd
admins very happy.

Also, FTBFS bugs are often filed by buildd admins; I'm sure they'd like
to spend their time doing things other than filing those bugs.
