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.
