Presence of such keywords is considered an error. Consistency is tested

+arches.desc in slave repositories
+---------------------------------
+
+If ``arches.desc`` is present in several repositories, then each file affects
+packages in the repository in question. If the file does not specify a value
+for given arch, the value from the master repository is used. However, using
+it in multiple repositories is discouraged.
+
+Note that the stability status override affects only packages in the slave
+repository and their direct dependencies. If an arch is set to ``testing``,
+then master repositories are still permitted to use stable keywords. If it is
+set to ``stable``, then missing stable keywords in dependencies from the master
+repository will cause dependency graph inconsistency.
