That's correct - EFL requires all of its components to be upgraded jointly.
And Debian likes to build arch-indep packages separately from arch-dependent.

I don't think either plan is workable.  Requiring gcc 10 is a temporary fix,
and is more drastic than I'm keen to accommodate.  And reverting
libelementary-data won't work either - afaik, I'd have to do a new source
upload which would fail due to this bug.

I think this requires fixing the bugs in gcc > 10.  You might ask about this on
debian-ia64 at lists.debian.org though the thread at [1] makes me doubt you'll get
a fix.
