A valid use case. I have something similar myself: mirror testing/unstable
for six arches + stable for only two of those.
There's a couple of open wishlist bugs for that. It comes under the
heading of "improved flexibility" (see my reply to Lee Winter).
There are some suggested approaches and I have some ideas, but not yet
decided on the best approach.
It is somewhere on my ToDo list, but not the highest priority.
