I believe this is mostly irrelevant for the discussion about Wine.

Making Wine in Debian depend on such lofty ideas that might be available 
very far in the future (if ever) would imply no Wine in the next Debian

Debian 12 will be released mid-2023, which is only 2 years away.
Debian 13 will be released mid-2025, which is only 4 years away.

If your partial cross built arch is ever fully implemented and supported 
by Debian it would be a good idea to migrate Wine to using that.

But a realistic solution for Wine in Debian 12 has to be multilib,
not multiarch.
