Yes, this is what I really felt like doing, since I had the ia32-libs
package.  So I went ahead and skipped those instructions and added this to

,-----[ tail -n 5 /etc/fstab ]
| # Chroot mounts
| /home                  /var/chroot/sid-ia32/home  none          bind                                   0       0
| /tmp                   /var/chroot/sid-ia32/tmp   none          bind                                   0       0
| proc                   /var/chroot/sid-ia32/proc  proc          defaults                               0       0

Installed firefox, mplayer, w32codecs, realplayer (last 3 from
Marillat's repos).  I haven't tested mplayer yet, but realplayer has quite
jumpy video (not smooth), which got me thinking about the /dev mount.  Any
further ideas on that welcome.

Another question that nobody seems to mention in the various how-tos is
what happens if you have say both the same 64-bit app in the main system
and 32-bit app in the chroot?  Because /home is mounted in both systems,
each version will be messing with each other's config stuff, won't it?
Say things like ~/.mozilla would change and probably get messed up by
changes made by each version of firefox.  How is that handled?
