I don't have a strong opinion about the addition/removal of this prefix
but I'd like to point out that contrary to other services, this one
reuses the "buildd" keyword which is already associated to
buildd.debian.org and it's a service which duplicates features
with an already existing service.
I guess that's the main reasons why Martin added the prefix to
disambiguate its status.
