Thanks. Okay, I did that, and I was then able to remove imagemagick, but only
if imagemagick:i386 is installed instead - and that's also marked as a
dummy package that can be safely removed or purged.

At this point:

~$ aptitude search '~iimagemagick'
idA imagemagick:i386                                                   - image manipulation programs -- binaries                                      
i A imagemagick-6-common                                               - image manipulation programs -- infrastructure                                
i   imagemagick-6.q16                                                  - image manipulation programs -- quantum depth Q16
