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
Debian Email: email@example.com
City/Country: LinCity / Freeciv
xearth: 003.54 45.34 (or however xearth data looks like)
