I would hope that this would be opt-in as well, or we're going to make a
lot of people angry. Some people don't necessarily want to broadcast the
list of packages they have or want on their system - broken or not.

Its not really a problem to simply add --skip-broken when something is broke.  But I'd be OK with yum automatically using the --skip-broken feature, explaining what is broke at the end, then asking if it is ok to report it anonymously.
