At least more than just very likly :)

We will try to get the release done a bit better on time. :)
So, we restricted the number of release targets very much. None of them
seems to qualify as release blocker IMHO.
Of course, if someone does the work to get them supported, that'd be
nice. And for multi-arch, my understanding up till now is that there is
still no consensus how it should be done. If this is fixed in time,
there might be some limited multi-arch support. Given our wish for a
release in 15-18 months, I feel that full multi-arch will probably not
be possible for etch in any case.
Of course, debian-release is not the forum to discuss about multiarch
