"Can" and "should" are different stories. 
When there's a missing build-dep on one arch, it might make sense to stop
that package from being distributed for other archs, so they don't waste
their time on that. 
You can't do that on a per buildd basis. 
Same for supplying additional build-deps that have already been solved on
faster archs. 

Have you ever watched several buildds doing their work to give qualified
comments on that issues? If so, join the group at #multibuild...
