libc6 includes much more than just /lib/* though, what do you do with

You can't make the assumption those files are identical, they could (for
example) be affected by the different word size[0].

Files in /usr/share are architecture-independent per the FHS. Architecture-dependent files in /usr/share are a violation of policy.

Files in /usr/lib are architecture-dependent, but I'd assume they'd be moved, just like /lib.
