Sure that would help, but, let's say sometime in the future when all
the ports are further along than they are now, a maintainer releases
his package.  You wouldn't have 1 upload announcement, but 5, all on
the same list, and the only[1] thing differing between them would be
the architecture field.  Is that really a "good" thing?

[1] Obviously some other stuff would change, like file size, md5sum
    and whatever, but for human readers the only real change would be
    the Architecture: field.
