But then it doesn't matter anymore. These days, Debian is "infrastructure".
We no longer make releases. We provide the basis from which others make releases

That's true in some regards, but hasn't to do anything with the number of
archs.
Especially it is wrong regarding the fact about Custom Debian Distributions
(if you mean this special term) because they reside inside Debian and in
consequence do also cope with all architectures.  There are reasons that
people use such CDDs for only a single architecture and do some further
adaptations to a CDD but this is a different issue.

Kind regards
