I think you missed the part about it being good to rebuild things with 
the newer toolchain.  So any binary package is worth rebuilding.  I 
suppose arch=any packages could be skipped.

Any administration overhead is needed to be avoided as it is likely
that such things block progress.

At the moment, it is easy to just sort the repos by last updated on the 
package search page and do some rebuilds if you have got some time.  If 
we decide that this would be a goal to have, they can easily be added to 
the Unimportant Rebuild List page.
