Users are responsible for rebuilding local packages when their hard
dependencies are updated. The `pkgrel` in an AUR package doesn't
correspond to a specific build like the `pkgrel` of binary packages in
the repositories.

Bumping the `pkgrel` would definitely annoy people who had already rebuilt it.
