No, sorry. That's not how we are using unstable. We push there stuff
that we believe to be mostly ready for the next stable release.
Unfinished/unstable work is supposed to go to experimental. And in the
case of dpkg doubly so because it affects everybody.
Fortunately multiarch support is not in a poor state and I believe it to
be of release quality (and it made a release in Ubuntu and did not
generate a flurry of bug reports).
Furthermore I don't think that guillem is worried of breaking unstable.
