I cannot see any real advantage for that, but for avoiding a FTBFS
reports proliferation. Also

a. Packages could become FTBFS later, when their dependency pkgs change.

b. They are already kept off testing (if there is a regression), 
   so what's the problem?

c. Very few packages are seriuosly broken on some archs. Their problems are
   generally due either to compiler/binutils problems or upstream
   coding. In both cases removing them on some archs could be a
   profitable solution for releasing.
