So, you currently upload every arch with the sourceful upload? Or do you
upload, wait for the buildd build-dep lock, and do a binary-only upload?

I don't think anyone wants to get rid of binary-only uploads.

Binary only uploads get rejected if there is no source package anyway,
so it's pretty easy to still allow binary-only-uploads and strip a .deb
on the sourceful upload.

No reason to make this default, though.
