At the very least they bring the possibility to run lintian against the binaries
on REVU, and IMHO that's just enough. That's one of the first things I do when
reviewing a package and it almost always shows some mistakes.

And if the binaries are broken or haven't been built from the sources... no
problem. They won't be available to the public.
