No, that's not how it works.
Packages must autobuild without failure on all architectures on
which they are supported. Packages must be supported on as many
architectures as is reasonably possible. Packages are assumed to
be supported on all architectures for which they have previously
built successfully. Prior builds for unsupported architectures
must be removed from the archive (contact -release or ftpmaster
if this is the case).
As skimage no longer builds on architectures where it used to build (and
where it thus is assumed to supported), the "serious" severity for this
bug is correct.
