At this point this becomes too theoretical, what you describe here is
not what a DD usually do. I prefer to remain on the practical side and
observe than uploading arch indep packages is common, while uploading
all arch any packages is not.

-A failures have no impact because the arch all packages are already
built by the DD. -B failures have a real impact because it renders the
package unavailable on the architectures other than the one used by the
DD. Hence the different severity between -A and -B failures.

So let's remain pragmatic and call "serious" something that is really
serious for our users.

I agree but that's a different case, this is just a plain old FTBFS.
This issue is about "dpkg-buildpackage" working but not
"dpkg-buildpackage -A".
