Your case is different. Arch: all can't depend on arch: any with a
equal-versioned dependency since they are not regenerated during a bin-NMU.
However the example above was the contrary, an arch: any package depending
on an arch: all. And Dato was right.

Your case is probably better handled with a simple higher-or-equal dependency.
