- color packages that "never" had a successful built on an architecture different. That information is already available because that's what marks the package as "uncompiled" vs "out-of-date".

I think it has added value if both cases (marked by the maintainer vs detected automatically) have value and could have different colors. Comparing it to autopkgtest, we currently color no-regression orange, while "neutral" (because of all kind of reasons, but the result of an actively set property) is blue.
