Yes, having skip-broken notify users of the problems its going to skip
over, and not silently skip would make me feel better. There will be a
vocal minority who will still report some of that breakage.

And since I'm asking for ponies, if there was an mechanism to drive
broken dep information back to the affected repositories via an email
or bugzilla drop that would also help me feel better.

The absolute worst thing we can do is to just silently ignore by default.
