Ok, I'll play.

How about, package maintainers will test that their package works  
correctly on all architectures and platforms their package supports,  
they will then submit the SRPM to enter in the next "scheduled" build  
cycle, if it builds clean they should hear nothing, but if it fails  
they should get the error report emailed back to them, they will then  
need to fix and re-submit for the next build cycle. The CentOS team  
will discard any new SRPMs that fail to build.

This puts the pressure on the maintainer to make sure it is thoroughly  
tested for all supported architectures and releases that they support.
