Could you please add something.

  To enable the migration even if either amd64 or i386 architecture
  is missing for one of the dependencies please

     [ ] file a bug against release.debian.org
     [ ] send an e-mail to debian-release.debian.org

(whatever might be prefered).

Thanks to all members of the release team
