Is there a reason?

Yes, the obvious reason that it failed its testsuite on i386:

(And since it's not security-related and not time-critical I didn't bother. Especially
since people by now should have hardware amd64-capable...)

Even though I'm on amd64-capable cpu and have :amd64 kernel installed, I cannot install libreoffice:amd64 without converting whole system do amd64 as it is not multiarch-compatible (e.g. libreoffice:amd64 depends on libreoffice-java-common:amd64, and it is not available [it is arch:all package, but not marked as m-a: foreign]; and there are a lot of similar problems; besides, there are python dependencies, and python is inherently not m-a friendly, and I'm sure much more).
