i386-only packages: porting bugs "wishlist"?

Greetings!  If an upstream package knowingly depends on
architecture-specific assembler code and kernel features and has not
been ported by upstream for non-x86 architectures, nor is intended to
be ported by upstream in the foreseeable future, can't bugs along the
lines of "doesn't build on arch ..." be downgraded from serious to
wishlist?  gcl is the package in question -- maxima depends on it, it
works just fine on x86, porting will take considerable effort.
Shouldn't this ship with the stable distribution?

Take care,
