The point is that you could install the 32bit -dev's in a chroot and
have the 64bit dev's on the main system.

Personally I'm not likely to compile i386 debs on my amd64 system.  I
expect we're going to continue to have i386 buildd's, and that could be
on an amd64 system if someone sets up a chroot for it (and is confident
it won't break things).  The only time I see this claim as being valid
for is prior to libraries being ported to amd64 and in that case those
who need it might be better off just installing i386 to begin with.
