Fact of the matter is, that even though people should report such

That would cause the 1 or 2 or 3 packages with probles to be held back, not the rest.


and it would give users very little awareness that something didn't get
patched.

giving them a false sense of security.

The burden of a broken repo/updates should not be placed on the end user. If there is a dependency problem, then the maintainer of the repo and/or package should be notified and is responsible for fixing the problem. What good does it do for the end user? If yum, pup, or pirut notes that packages x,y & z were not updated then no one would get a false sense of security (no more a false sense than when none of the packages are updated anyway). Plus this would be a little more presentable and user friendly.
