Nobody would read every build error for thousands of packages; such a list
is useless as-is, and requires any recipient to customize filters to be of
any use.

Per-package removes the need for filters: just subscribe to the packages
you care about.

An rss feed would be perfect: it's easy to ignore old reports. Also,
implementing rss is just a matter of generating one more "web page" per
package: no mailserver or list config required.
