Both statements are ambigious.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the plan is to allow installing of
multiple architectures of the same shared library in parallel and
installing binaries from different architectures but never the same
binary from multiple architectures in parallel.

So far there is no plan at all at allowing multiple architectures for
the same binary to be installed in parallel other than individual
packages using alternatives or a common wrapper script where it is
really needed.

At least that is my understanding of the proposaland surrounding
