I think they are both true. 

Syncing from Testing we get only completed transitions, but the risks of archive skew are greater. 

We've still got some packages that are depwait because a sufficient version of a build depend didn't make it (and I was involved in a couple of forced downgrades already), so this isn't a panacea.
