I wouldn't wait that long, because it can take ages until Adobe will
release the next Flash version. I would only wait until Adobe releases a
final "stable" release of this native 64 bit version.

After that I would keep flashplugin in [multilib] but rename it to
lib32-flashplugin or bin32-flashplugin and put the native 64 bit
version as flashplugin into [extra] again.

The [multilib] version should, of course be kept at least until it is
sure that Adobe really maintains this 64 bit version. I bet it would be
better to never remove this [multilib] version.
