We seem to be using "noarch" in two different senses:

1. Contains no machine code, other architecture-specific bits, or
build-system-specific artifacts (like build timestamps, build machine
names, etc.)

2. Can be built/installed/consumed on any architecture.

Those aren't the same.  Since the addition of a new arch can break #2,
how can packagers mean anything other than #1 by "noarch"?
