The same principle that applies to all dpkg output to avoid ambiguity
would apply everywhere, whenever there's a “Multi-Arch: same” package
name that needs to be unambiguous, it just always gets arch-qualified.
The rest would stay as they are.

So, at least for lintian and reportbug, given that these file/dir names
are package name based they would just get arch-qualified when needed.
