Building the binary packages separately from one another is not an 
issue.  I think the culprit is that the arch:all packages are uploaded 
before the build of a corresponding architecture-dependent package has 
succeeded.  That is why I have started a new ticket (#1040598 [2]) to 
ask the FTP masters and maintainers for help.

I do understand that.

Yes indeed, it would most likely.  My second option was more about asking 
to copy the old version 1.25.1-1 of libelementary-data back to the ia64 
repository because it is still there in the pool of the FTP servers 
because of oldstable (bullseye).  Yet I understand that this is nothing 
that you can do, so again I asked the FTP masters and maintainers for
