"(a) it's incompatible with the x86_64 ABI"
That's not true, no. Debian x86_64 variant pure64 is fully compatible with the x86_64 ABI published by the LSB, both way.
"(b) it forces you to jump through hoops to run 32-bit apps."
That might look like hoops, but it is much more cleaner and powerful since it let you install any packages (not just libraries) in the variant (32,64 or both) of your choice.
Beside, chroot is a wonderful technology with Debian and it deserves to be more widely used.
