[Rdo-list] python-backports is arch-specific?

Hey, I'm mainly asking for RHEL 6.5 but also using Fedora 19 and when 
updating to the latest python-backports-ssl_match_hostname it requires 
python-backports to avoid a file conflict.

However, I noticed that while python-backports-ssl_match_hostname is 
noarch, python-backports is arch-specific.  Looking at the source for 
backports, it's not really clear to me why that is - can someone explain 
if it's intentional or a packaging oversight?
