I think that would be better done in the cross toolchain package
However, I do not like the idea of enforcing GPL requirements with
exact version in the cross toolchain when the archive doesn't support
it for any package yet. I think pointing at a snapshot.debian.net
alike service providing all versions of all sources which have ever
been in Debian unless they can't be redistributed is a better way of
solving the source compliance problem and it would actually solve it in
the cross toolchain case as well.
