Yes, I forgot about the split packages. An inexperienced user
unfortunately would build a split package two times instead of one time.
Not really an issue.

I guess a real issue when yaourt is used by an inexperienced user, is
the lexical order updated packages are build.

If package "a" depends on package "b", we need to build "b" before we
build "a", but yaourt would build "a" at first.
