What is lacking in the proposals out there?

You are wrong.  :)

glibc has multiarch support in sarge already; I have patches for gcc
to get multiarch support and a mostly-working implementation of it for
libogg, libvorbis and alsaplayer.  Currently working on fixing the
dpkg multiarch support, based on patches by Hugo Mills.
