It has been YOUR agreement.

We are doing more than that. We are separating 32bit support from
community, too. I want to make it a strict rule that no multilib package
can ever enter community again. Or core. Or extra. (Btw, that rule would
imply that grub is being removed from core-x86_64).

To repeat what I said several times: multilib support MUST be in its own
repository, the core/extra/community Arch Linux MUST stay pure 64.

It is official in a sense that it is maintained by Arch developers and TUs.
