As it blocks testing transition and "only" breaks a usecase which can be
exercised only with a non-released version of dpkg i think important is
better suited.

Its grave for multiarch, but given that my last information from the
beginning of february is that dpkg maintainers are discussing how the
commandline interface will be for specifying which architecture of the
package is meant and as i don't know what the outcome of this discussion is
i hope its relatively reasonable that i haven't implemented it so far. ;)

Best regards

P.S.: I am still not too sure what to do with pkg:all + MultiArch flag.
In general, i would appreciate if it could be added to the spec in more
detail as aptitude/cupt/whatever will hit the same problem at the time
they implement it…
