Why are these bugs anyway? I mean, not why they are defined as bugs
(I do know the rule), but why does this rule exist (or, at least,
still exist)?

Even quite some time ago, I’d assume a build to always start from
a clean state (.dsc or, nowadays, a VCS). Package uploads are made
after cowbuilder (pbuilder) or sbuild.

So, is this still necessary?

Apologies for getting slightly off with the topic.
