That is no problem.

I'm not a fan of the debian/control generation, and I would rather try
to get rid of it than expand it. But that's just my personal opinion.

I don't know if that would really be necessary. If an architecture is
not supported, then the buildds will set the architecture to Dep-Wait.
There is nothing you should need to do.
I think the Architecture field should be seen more in a conceptual way,
like "lilo only works on i386", but *not* in a way
like "postgresql-pljava does not work on mips" because no one has
ported the java compiler to mips yet.
