When we totally rely on the build service, we might reach a point

be able to build anymore, should this service become unavailable at
some time in the future.

But it seems like I am the only one with such (paranoid?) thinking,
so I am probably totally wrong.

No, I believe there is value in your thinking. I want to be able to build
packages from source without access to the OBS, even if I can't think of a
good reason I'd need to right now.
