I believe deleting i386 and armhf before 18.10 is the politest thing to do:
- supporting these architectures in 2025 doesn't sound plausible
- thus supporting them in 20.04 LTS doesn't sound plausible
- thus we should not encourage our users to accidentally migrate off
18.04 LTS to 18.10, 19.04, or 19.10.
*Maybe* if we modify do-release-ugprade to ask users to confirm typing
"I know what I'm doing" it wouldn't be so bad to support both arches
But 20.04 LTS ought not include these architectures and I don't want to
strand anyone away from an LTS release.
