We turn off debuginfo completely at the moment.
I don't. Instead, in my cross-tool packages, I hack the find-debuginfo.sh etc. to not look into directories which are known not contain "native binaries".

Depends on what you are referring to. cross-tools are native applications, therefore "debuginfos" are useful for them (More accurately: As part of Fedora having them is a MUST).

Whether debuginfos are useful for target applications/libraries is a different matter. It also depends on these package's use-cases.

Note that some packages could build binaries for several architectures
at once, and would need to generate separate debuginfo for them.
An important group of such packages are one-tree-style built GCC+libc packages. They typically contain target-libraries and host (here: Linux) applications (+libraries)
