As the author of the above, apologies if this was too presumptive.

However, it was my understanding from the discussion that the
proposals being discussed here are basically about how best to
realise the goal of having build-arch and build-indep implemented;
I thought that the goal itself was relatively uncontroversial, but
the means of achieving it were still under discussion.

The lintian text can easily be changed if needed.
