So why would you introduce a change that may triger a lot of new complications 
and incompatibilities?
I have a multiarch on my amd64 system only because I want to use applications 
that I can't use or does not have the same functionalities with amd64 (mostly 
firefox, ooo and mplayer then...).
But I'll be happy to have a full amd64 system if only they could provide the 
same with it.

So, as for Pierre, a binary package per multiarch system seems obviously the 
solution, since a user needs only a given functionalities.

Why would you see many binaries installed from the user point of view?
