I think it's ok to initially build with arch:any as long as there is sufficient support from upstream. However if it turns out that some arch-dependent packages are unusable and upstream does not intend to fix this, we should not claim that we can. I think restricting the build to supported architectures is sensible then. Like I said I don't know if those architectures are supported now. Back in April Tony wrote that upstream has started to work on architecture support. https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=779482#21 Perhaps something has changed in the latest version?
