Well, because packages in testing should be buildable from testing.

Otherwise, when we release testing as the new stable, we would have a
package in stable which fails to build in stable.

[ Please note that I would not have filed this bug if testing and
  unstable had different versions, because in such case the only
  interesting version to check would be the version in unstable.

  In this case we are talking about version 2.8.3+dfsg-5 which is
  already in testing and for which there is not a newer version in
  unstable to check. ]

It probably builds in unstable, yes, but what I'm reporting here is
not that it fails to build in a "generic sense". I'm reporting that it
fails to build in testing.

So, before tagging this as "unreproducible", could you please try to
build it on testing, which is what this report is about?
