What is the default value for the Multi-Arch field?


there seems to be some controversy about what the value of the Multi-Arch field
should be if a package is explicitly not multiarched:

apt: #759099 and dpkg: #732648

Since the implementation of multiarch in dpkg in June 2009, dpkg understands
"Multi-Arch: no" and only that. Though in October 2013 the spec was changed to
say "Multi-Arch: none"


Having the spec say "none" while the implementation said "no" for the past five
years is confusing.

Can we somehow fix that?

CC-ing Thomas Hood as he introduced that change into the spec.
