Nice initiative!

I'd use some different usertag for this, as it is IMHO not that specific 
to kbsd (even if it will matter for you soon, it seems); this way this 
"migration" (and any other usage of wildcard archs, like for migrating 
"list of linux archs" -> "linux-any", "kfreebsd-amd64 kfreebsd-i386" -> 
"kfreebsd-any", etc) could be generically tracked without getting also 
the kfreebsd bugs.
What about a generic:
  User: debian-devel@lists.debian.org
  Usertags: wildcard-archs

A couple of notes for packages in your list:
- google-gadgets, qtmobility
  they have been fixed already in their git packaging repository,
  so their next upload will make use of wildcard archs
- kradio4
  I can do a QA upload for it
