Not all.  But some of those who don't, watch like hawks the buildd-reports,
so the arch-dep packages are fixed ASAP.

If people don't do even THAT much, you want them to have the possibility of
uploading source-only?   It would be better to set up a arch-indep
autobuilder (on a FAST machine that can handle pbuilder's unpacking of
chroots, so that chroot crappage won't happen so often) and file FTBFS
