Huh?  I read it as the exact opposite.

If I'm not mistaken, any DD is currently allowed to do uploads
containing binary packages of any arch if the condition is met that the
upload also contains new source.  In short: src+bin uploads are
currently allowed.

What this GR would change is that either

- no one is allowed to do pure bin *and* src+bin uploads, only pure src
  uploads are allowed, or

- pure bin uploads are allowed for any arch, or

- there's a list of arches for which only pure src uploads are allowed.

Indeed.  That should be made clear.

Also, the wording seems unclear: "Debian developers [...] should be
allowed".  "Should" normally means something: "need not in all cases,
but really should except if there are strong reasons against".

Which seems to be just the current situation, from the point of view of
those who have the power to reject binary uploads...
