While the ideas themselves are worthwhile, they do not seem to be
"release goal" material at first glance[1].  (Or possibly I am
misunderstanding the "Affect more than just one set of packages" clause
in [1]).

dpkg (and maybe APT) is probably the only tools needing to be changed.

That said, from a RT PoV, "multiarch compatible binNMUs" would be
appreciated so we don't break m-a with each and every transition.

I am guessing this is (mostly) a dak/buildd.d.o side change or so.

[1] https://wiki.debian.org/ReleaseGoals

Please note: a release goal should be:

    SMART (Specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, timely)
    Affect more than just one set of packages (eg: not just a package
    Have an 'advocate', who can track and keep status of progress.
