If this proposal had been approved a year ago as is, amd64 stable
keywords could have been dropped all over the place, making stable tree
unsupported on amd64 de facto (guess how many users would have left
Gentoo) and agravating our past workload problems.

So the consequences of this policy being applied on a regular basis can
be far worse than arches lagging behind.
