multi-arch and non-multi-arch gobject introspection in Debian and derivatives

I have a short question, asking for opinion and feedback.
At the moment all gir1.2-* packages in Debian must have multi-arch
paths for the .typelibs files that provide information for gobject
In Ubuntu and possibly other derivatives, this step has not been taken
yet, .typelibs files are installed to non-multi-arch locations.
This makes it quite difficult for downstream maintainers (Ubuntu et
al.) to simply pull over src:packages that provide some gir1.2-*
My proposal for the interim phase (however long that might be) is to
provide symlinks in gir1.2-* packages that provide correct
functionalities in Debian and downstream distros (such as described
above), as well.
This surely wouldn't be something worth a freeze exception (I guess),
but once we have jessie in place, is this something others would
consider, as well?
Happy about feedback!
