Yes, please do that. The name 'ppc32' will make things clearer.

Instead of 'libc6-powerpc' and 'libc6-dev-powerpc' one could perhaps
also use use the names 'lib32c6' and 'lib32c6-dev' for the 32-bit
alternative packages.

This would be consistent with the naming of the 'lib32gcc1' and
'lib32stdc++6' packages from gcc-4.0. The same name lib32c6(-dev)
could later also be used for 32-bit libc6 packages on amd64.

However, the name 'libc6(-dev)-powerpc' is easier to implement 
because it follows the current naming scheme for alternative
libc6 packages and can therefore use the already existing 
infrastructure for packaging.
