But we're not talking about a secondary arch, we're talking about a
primary arch.  Like it or not, ppc (and thus ppc64) is a primary arch
set and must addressed just like the other primary arches.

As for secondary arches, the current proposal would not stop you from
building your package if the build fails on the secondary arch.  It's
up to the secondary arch team to either get your build working, or work
with you to insert an ExcludeArch.  But it doesn't have to be done
immediately to get your primary update out.
