The problem  I  can   see  it's perhaps  slightly  different.  Another
drawback of  hard-wired dependences is  that if  even only  one of the
listed package is  not  available on  a  certain  arch,  then all  the
meta-package is broken.

Having  a  debtags  based system  would  help,  as  if package  is not
available simply is not selected  for installation, and moreover if we
implement debtas based queries at qa.debian.org (something similar to


but which allows  searching by tag),  then you can  have a web view of
which packages of a given task are not installable on a given arch.
