[arch-general] Why are there no debug packages?

There has been many discussions and requests for separate debug symbol
packages, even people offering to implement modifications needed for
separate debug repos. But now, several years later, debug packages did
not happen. I couldn't even find a definitive answer why there
couldn't be debug packages in the official repos.
So, why are there no debug packages (not even for the commonly
requested ones like KDE and glibc)?
