We have that already. The existing policy, allowing ExcludeArch but
requiring a bug to be filed, works extremely well.

A question which had occurred to me also. We seem to be trying to

For building (and scheduling) actual releases, there may be some point
in making the distinction. For the routine package builds, it seems
unnecessary.
