What standards are you referring to? IIRC, back before "sid" meant
unstable, it was used to denote new ports which were not quite ready
yet, but these files were still hosted on the ftp site. I think
the standards for having something in ftp.debian.org are really much
much lower than "ready for prime time".
I think biarch64 might progess a lot faster if it was made available
in this way.
