Yes, the information is likely to get outdated once some binary packages change
their dependencies.

Would it be possible to use existing Debian infrastructure to run this code
instead of my own server which would be too low-spec for this kind of task?

It would be trivial to write a shell script which runs the correct code for all
architectures and all suites and outputs static html with the relevant
information. Unfortunately, the code depends on some yet uncommitted fixes to
dose3 [1] so compiling it is not yet too trivial but requires applying my
patches first.
