I see the build service as a very nice tool that SUSE is giving to the 
packagers so they have an easier time making packages.

It wouldn't hurt if the build service would have a clearly defined section 
with third party proprietary packages.

Perhaps some vendors would use the build service to make .RPMs of their 
software then put that software on their own site for download.

Anything that increases the number of well built packages for SUSE is a good 
thing.
