your absolutely correct, and you're running a pure-amd64 install.
i don't think, that migrating from unstable to testing once amd64
entered debian, and once it has a testing tree, will be a big deal.
you just change your sources.list, and wait until all packages currently
installed are superseded by never versions in testing, as downgrading
isn't recommented in those general cases.

no, it just allows you to still run 32bit binarys on your 64bit install.
is enables you to use software compiled for the (currently more
widespread) i386 port of linux kernels.
