The reason we keep all architectures in sync is so that you end
up running the same thing if you install "Debian" on any supported
architecture. Otherwise you'd install "Debian" on i386 and have the
latest features, but install "Debian" on alpha and have an older version
of some packages with fewer features and different bugs that need to be
worked around.
