Keeping them around is different from them being considered as release
architectures (or even just keeping them in testing).  Keeping these
architectures in testing do involve a burden, like blocking testing
migration when they FTBFS[1].

In theory they could all stay in sid provided that the relevant teams
approve it.  I believe the FTP masters are the authority on that.
However, I would not be surprised if DSA were to object to maintaining
machines running sid.


[1] Having them in testing as a "F***ED" and "BREAK" arch would remove
that burden, but you might as well just use sid then.
