Even if a "first-class tag" for each architecture may be too much
inflation, perhaps a generic "portspecific" tag could be helpful
(although I cant give precise recipes how this should be used ...)

And while we are at suggesting real tags ... what about a "dfsg" tag?

There is would be nice if reassigning a package would preserve fixed and
found versions - at least for the common subset of source packages in
the old and new assignment set.

Control: affects -1 + port1-pseudopackage port2-pseudopackage
be useful?
