Wouldn't the ideal solution be non-architecture-specific changelogs?
So, a normal binnmu changelog looks like this now:

package (version) sid; urgency=low

  * Binary-only non-maintainer upload for amd64; no source changes.

 -- amd64 Builddd Daemon (barber)
<buildd_amd64-barber@buildd.debian.org>  Tue, 05 Jun 2012 16:33:05

which could be changed to something like this instead:

package (version) sid; urgency=low

  * Binary-only non-maintainer upload; no source changes.

 -- Debian Release Team <debian-release@lists.debian.org>  Tue, 05 Jun
2012 16:33:05 +0000

or some other appropriate binnmu mailing address.  This would also
mean rebuilding all of the other architectures for multi-arch same
packages so that they all get the same changelog.

Best wishes,
