I did not mean it this way. I'll try to explain:

When we totally rely on the build service, we might reach a point
that we can not build without this service anymore, no matter whether
we have the sources or not. So there's the risk that we would not
be able to build anymore, should this service become unavailable at
some time in the future.

The build service is just a way to automatically setup the
build environment and trigger rebuilds. The real building
is done via a standard 'rpmbuild' call.
