I hope you're wrong.

What is nonsensical is that one of the most popular architectures is
still not official.
But the point is moot anyway.

But if noone develop for that system, there is not point making it
official, isn't there?

I meantioned one solution. There is another possible one: source uploads.
And no, I don't think it would cause more breakages than nowdays because
uploading sources only doesn't meant packages have not been build on
