We are quick to drop packages that dont build. And sometimes that even breaks packages in devel projects because those usually just link to Factory
I also believe this is not a problem - if packages don't build, they should be fixed quickly. We could possibly do with better notifications/dashboards in this area to make it easier for maintainers to realise when their stuff is broken.
Note here: a package that does not build in openSUSE:Factory triggers emails to the people listed as maintainers with a personal notice to fix their packages... and we're not THAT fast in dropping non-building packages. We have packages that have not have successful builds for > 2 months
