First <origin> objects are distinct from <package> object, and there’s
no connection from the <origin> to the containing <package> (if any).

Second, the ‘arguments’ field is passed as-is, uninterpreted, to the
build system.  And most of the time the ‘arguments’ field has no
#:phases argument anyway.
