No, I would get a list of maintainers.
My suggestion was to have non-i386 maintainers listed as such or better
have a list of architectures for each maintainer.
The information for a maintainer would than look something like this:

Maintainer: test dummy
Email: dummy@test.org
Debian Email: dummy@debian.org
City/Country: LinCity / Freeciv
xearth: 003.54 45.34 (or however xearth data looks like)
Arch: i386 m68k

[x] add to xearth data
[x] have it on www

An Packages field would be nice also, but that can be extracted from the
Packages.gz anyway.

May the source be with you.
