I tend to agree. --skip-broken would first need to recognize something as
"broken", such as a dep that cannot be resolved. Only then it would
exclude the package and try to resolve deps again.

The typical case where an update on x86_64 pulls in lots of unwanted i686
packages is when an update "takes away" something that is still needed by
other [installed] packages. The depsolver finds [possibly older] i686
packages that still provide the needed things and can be used to resolve
the non-arch-specific deps.
