The only problem I see is the need for a binary only upload to
bootstrap. Since it is an arch:all package, it won't affect
bootstrapping new architectures. Did I miss any problems? Can you share
links to previous discussions/policy/other docs that explains the
problems with build depending on itself?

There are similar issues that lintian catches about dependencies like
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=876016 (circular
dependencies).
