Couldn't this be broken into two steps?

Step 1:  Discard arch-specific packages but keep arch all ones
            - dak throws away all arch-specific binary packages
            - also allows only buildd keys for arch-specific packages
            - but continues to allow DD keys for arch all

Step 2:  Discard all binary packages
            - implement some kind of arch all buildd solution
            - dak throws away all binary packages
            - only allows buildd key signatures

The first would be easy (for FTP masters) and would be a good initial
step forward.  The second would require some hard work and may take
some time.

Best wishes,
