Sorry for the bikeshedding, but don't we already have ways to express
exactly what we mean?

    Build-Depends-Indep: some-pkg-only-avail-on-i386-and-amd64

...that being I guess the common case where you need to build arch:all
on a specific architecture: because of availability of build tools.

And if there are any cases even more exotic (you need to restrict the
arch but _not_ because of build-dep availability):

    Build-Conflicts-Indep: build-essential [!i386]
