We could make /lib64 a symlink to /lib/x86_64-linux, but what about /lib/i386-linux? A kind of circular symlink from /lib to /lib/i386-linux?
The same would apply for the /usr/lib64 and /usr/lib paths.

This seems to be a general weakness of the current multiarch proposals.

Uhm, why? Libraries directly in /lib and /usr/lib are legacy libraries. There's nothing wrong with those, except they won't work well with multiarch libraries.
