Inconsistent Architecture?

In debian/control, the Architecture field allows either "all", "any",
or a list of arches (from 4.2.3 in the Packaging Manual).  I'm
wondering why the ! notation from build dependencies hasn't also been
taken up here.  For example:

  Architecture: !i386 !alpha

should be equivalent to "any", but not i386 or alpha.  Otherwise you
must explicitly list all the valid arches.
