No, this is not a reason to make them arch-specific.  A lot of packages
give different results when built twice in a row, on the *same*

There is an effort under way to change that, called “reproducible
builds”.  The hard part is any reproducibility at all, identical noarch
builds across architectures are likely just some additional work on top
of it.
