Users have less information about the value of the debug information.
If we encourage people who don't have gdb installed to use debug
builds, what have we gained? :-)

Making multiple builds available is an admin PITA (if you know how to
do better, please advise, but that's been my experience) and the disk
space can add up fast (since modularized installs are detested by most
users; they want a one-file-download-and-no-questions-asked-install).
