are you talking about edos-debcheck or edos-BUILDdebcheck here?
build-debcheck (the next generation) has already that feature. For
edos-debcheck, this could easily be achieved by filtering the
packages file through grep-dctrl, since for binary packages
there are no architecture constraints on the package relations
(as oposed to source packages). But we can consider adding such
an option to edos-debcheck too if you really need it.

there is no problem as long as different versions of the same package
have different version numbers. There is a problem only when there
are different packages
with the same name and also the same vesion number.
