Yes, but it seems to me that if a package fails on the first two (or maybe
three) architectures that it might be a good idea to suspend further
autobuilding until someone can look into the problem.  It doesn't seem
likely that many packages are going to fail on the first three
architectures and then succeed on all the others.
