I agree too on the policy.

I agree.
To me the question is more about how to automatically detect that a
patch breaks another package than a policy to remove a broken package.

I mean if we are able to automatically detect 6 months later that a
package is broken, why are we not able to report the failure earlier?
And if it is not automatic, this means that someone reports  the
failure by hand, so somehow this patch is important to them and then
why remove it?

All the best,
