For cross-building there are lots of useful combinations. Many
combinations are interesting but currently native is usually amd64,
sometimes i386, soon other arches like arm64 and ppc64el might become 
more popular as native build host:
native-arch: amd64
foreign-archs: <any arch>, could sometimes be a list like 'armel armhf', 'powerpc ppc64el'

For general runtime multiarch use I've found
native-arch: arm64
foreign-arch: armhf
useful recently (for using armhf packages in bootstrapping when arm64
ones were not yet available/working)

Principal hats:  Linaro, Emdebian, Wookware, Balloonboard, ARM
