But it is exactly the derivations from the canonical standard system
on a buildd that has the potential to break stuff for users (wrong
shlib dependencies, different toolchain, etc.).

Why we deprive the majority (i386) of our users the privilege of
getting known good packages? (Since the majority of DDs does binary
uploads for i386 as well)?
