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.
