why don't we just let people decide themselves? We already grant every
DD very liberal upload permissions to the archives because we trust them
and their capabilities. Hence, I do not think we would like something
like this despite of dak's support for it.

Pretending we had a working concept to throw away binaries and how to
deal with arch:all packages, why don't we introduce a control/changes
file flag similar in spirit to "XS-Autobuild: yes" instructing dak not
to throw away binaries upon explicit request - say "XS-keep-binary: yes".
