I agree with this. The same checks shall be in individual (user) and
bulk builds.

If there is a chance that something builds by an accident, just creating
broken package does not improve the situation over returning an error.
This is rather the opposite and increases the frustration of users.

pkglint or similar auxiliary tools should be just optional on discretion
of a developer (and highly recommended).
