multiarch, required packages, and multiarch-support

If a required package (such as e2fslibs, which is required by e2fsprogs)
provides multiarch support, then Lintian requires that the package have
a dependency on the package "multiarch-support"[1].

However, this causes debcheck to complain because you now have a
required package depending on a package, multiarch-support, which is
only at "standard" priority[2]

[2] http://qa.debian.org/debcheck.php?dist=unstable&package=e2fsprogs

What is the right thing to do to resolve this mutually irreconcilable
set of complaints from either Lintian or debcheck?
