How exactly would you state that, then? Note that a footnote in this
section already says this:

[1]  If you make "build-arch" or "binary-arch", you need Build-Depends.  If
     you make "build-indep" or "binary-indep", you need Build-Depends and
     Build-Depends-Indep.  If you make "build" or "binary", you need both.
