Does this part mean "developer-accessible machine is always usable for
all debian developers"?  Does such machine have dchroot for
old-stable/stable/unstable ?

I want you to describe this part explicitly:

 - must be at least one development debian.org machine that is
   available for all debian developers (not restricted) for the
   architecutre.  dchroot for stable/unstable must be available on
   that machine.

We, architecture specific package maintainers, including toolchain
package (gcc and glibc), frequently need to compile and test their
packages to support them (ex: new ABI and upstream release).  I
sometimes met such developer un-accessible architectures - developer
accessible machine is more important to keep each architecture usable.
IMO, such unmaintained architecture machines must be SCC, caused by
lazyness of porting teams.
