Because there was no need for them before.

I'd like to see how fixed that invariant is.  AFAIK it's only one on
convention level.  If a coordinating set of packages relies on
arch:all packages getting binNMUed, I don't see what the problem is.
I'm not proposing to have this enabled by default, but this is just a
situation where it would be useful.

So you think that sourceful uploads for Haskell libraries is the
expected thing to do?  We're talking about tens of packages.
