I have my personal i386 autobuilder running that way for some months now.
It makes sense; I certainly have caught quite a few problems with it --
there's not just the missing-dependency problem that makes packages

Sure, some uploaded packages will be unbuildable, which would generate
more work for the builders, but that problem is solveable. For example, we
could block a package from building when two other autobuilders have
reported a failure on it. That would have the added benefit to place
somewhat less load on already-overworked architectures like m68k.

My vote would be to Just Do It. I can certainly help set up and/or admin a
few autobuilders for i386, if that's what it takes.

goes out, he should not leave his face at the window.  Someone might steal it."
