They do. They just ignore the issue; they can do that because it's a
scalability issue that, ultimately, can be fixed by throwing large
amounts of hardware (for more build hosts) at it. Debian does not have
that luxury.

Copyshops should do vouchers. So that next time some bureaucracy
requires you to mail a form in triplicate, you can mail it just once,
add a voucher, and save on postage.
