I think about inserting it in
https://www.debian.org/CD/http-ftp/index.en.html because it's the page
where Henrik was blocked.

Inserting the list in the page will probably less useful. Perhaps we
could add it in the FAQ? When a new version of the FAQ will be online,
we can make a 'more info about architecture' link to the Q&A in the FAQ
after the sentence.

I plan to do these two steps in few days if no one has a better solution.
