IMO the better approach would be multiarch-compat and multiarch-compat-dev
packages, built from a multiarch-compat source package (I do not want to
maintain these).

the multiarch-compat package would hold the symlinks for the shared libraries,
the multiarch-compat-dev package the *.o symlinks and the asm symlink from
eglibc (currently in gcc-multilib).

with more packages migrating to multiarch locations, you could extend these
packages, or build new binary packages from this source package.

But then, the breaks wouldn't be helpful.
