IIRC d-i requires them to be in the Packages file.
But I don't think it is so problematic as you write. One could do
multiple suites, and merge them just before apt writes the packages
file, i.e. a
for arch in arches; do cat
So, for all of dak, the packages life in different suites. Just for the
users, they're in the same (perhaps a "sort -u" would be better than a
cat, however :).
