I don't think there's a good reason to build them separately, and some
good reasons not to (for example, it would waste a good deal of buildd
time for a number of packages without very hygienic separation of their
build rules). My suggestion would be to just build them along with the
architecture-dependent binaries for some nominated architecture, which
could be package-specific or not depending on what you all have time
for, and be done with it.
