True, but it wouldn't be good for the default to be unusable for
cross-building.

I understand the situation but most personal/portable mirrors only
mirror one or at most a few architectures which makes it unusable for
cross-building. You would presumably have to ask in advance which
architectures people will need to have available - that isn't
particularly useful as a default for all users.
