OTOH this would mean that we would go one step away from the KISS

If somebody has got a 32-bit install, the 32-bit architecture
repositories should be what is needed.
If somebody has got a 64-bit install, the 64-bit architecture
repositories should be what is needed (and perhaps multilib too).

Just an additional "any" repository alone wouldn't kill the KISS
principle, but it easily could become an endless chain of
pseudo-efficiency. Why not separating headers and libs from the bin
packages, as e.g. Debian does? This is just a rhetorical question ;).
