"What (and how) MACHINE_ARCH should releng (binary builders) specify
 for each arm port on NetBSD 7.0 release?"

So, your answer is
"We will never prepare such upgrade path"

It doesn't answer the question at all.

The question is "which MACHINE_ARCH".

You never mentioned such "simple mechanism" goal in public, did you?

The probelm is all your changes have been committed without
public discussion and proper article.  That's all.

You never answered any questions either, and
you never wrote proper commit logs.
(PR numbers, reports on public mailing lists etc.)

You have never answered other core member's question
about mips64 breakage either, put no comments to recent fixes.

It looks far from proper behavior as a core member..
