it is the matter of filing one RT ticket and waiting a few days for IS
and a LOSA to enable the arch for the respective PPA, if it already
builds armel it is a no-brainer to also enable armhf ...

the important part for us is that if you start the transition now, can
you guarantee that all packages are in order for the alpha2 milestone on
armhf without having them built in the PPA ? 
our image builds indeed depend on the package dependencies
being correct in the archive and we don't want to risk missing alpha2
due to this transition.
armhf is our poposed default arch for precise and there are high chances
that arm might even be an LTS this time round so we urgently need the
testing of the last milestone before feature freeze where we plan to
make the final decision about the default arm arch.
