Should the documentation be updated?  [1] describes "arch" as "An array 
of architectures that the PKGBUILD file is known to build and work on." 
  That description implies to me that if you haven't tested it on i686 
then you shouldn't list i686.  However, the actual AUR convention is, as 
you say, to include i686 and x86_64 unless you know it's nonportable.
