I agree the false positive are annoying, but this is understandable
since the system is still in development (the recent addition of
disorderfs caused some troubles for example). Fortunately the
reproducible builds team is very reactive and the issues are solved
quickly. I expect the notifications to stabilize progressively.

Actually I tend to prefer the reports in unstable. The reports in
testing are often duplicates of issues already known in unstable, and
sometimes they are already fixed in unstable when they are notified in
testing. If we were to keep the reports for only suite I'd prefer the
unstable reports since it gives a faster feedback on our work.
