Most packages missing testing migration due to not built is because
the package is *broken*. Not because the buildds are slow. I don't
think it makes any sense to migrate an package to testing which is
broken on some architectures. Unless you consider all other
architectures to be second-class citicens.

That was already discussed and approved for testing I think in
Helsinki. However, it needs someone implementing code, and isn't as
easy as it looks like. Feel free to submit patches though.

that's already done.
