It's valid reasoning, but it is not really backed up my package. Here is from
the current debian/control for source package r-base (which creates
r-base-core, r-base-dev, and a few more):

There is no special-casing for mips.  Or are you trying to tell me that mips
/ mipsel have _no tcl/tk_ whatsoever?  That can't be, can it?
