Recasting the question, would there be enough drift wrt the Architecture
field in the source package to be worth the upkeep? ATM I can't think at
any case where the tag would be different to the concept of "there is a
binary package on a given arch".

If the drift it's not enough I would rather prefer to start thinking at
an infrastructure in which external---or more generally,
derived---information can be used as tags.
