Could be done, but my understanding is that they explicitly *don't*
trust maintainers.  In other words, p-a-s is separate from the
debian/control Architecture lines for the same reason the ftpmasters'
override file is separate from the debian/control Section and Priority
lines.  Because the buildd admins, and ftpmasters, *want* to maintain
this information manually.

I could be wrong.
