I don't think there's a good reason to build them separately, and some

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.

In kali, that's exactly what I have been doing. Any package that builds
an arch: all is sent to an amd64 buildd and sbuild on the amd64 buildd gets
called with -A.

It doesn't matter whether it builds only the arch: all or another package

We need to convey if the arch:all is actually needed, though, otherwise dak will reject the package. Or could we simply build it always and have it discarded if the maintainer's copy had been accepted?
