Ask the s390x folks, they asked for them.  Though what on earth inspired
them to name the new architecture such that the old architecture name is
a substring of the new name is beyond me...  As far as I can tell nobody
is really using the biarch packages on most architectures, it's a check
box feature for the architectures - a couple use them to build some of
the bootloaders but not many.

Aside from this sillyness with the s390x architecture name they're
generally zero effort so it's not a big deal.
