Please review the mail which originated this thread [1] where you will see
that both armel and armhf are affected by DSA's concern. If I understand
correctly, virtualisation of architectures in general is a possible
solution but there are problems in the case of these two.

At the end of the day, if Debian can't reliably run builders for an 
architecture we do not do users a service by pretending to be able to
support it in a formal release. A freeze may be for Christmas, but stable
is for at least five+ years.
