Of course it's the responsibility of the applications! But if you're changing all the applications anyway, there's no reason to use fatelf rather than multiarch.
Sorry, but you've already named the reason: fatelf makes it easy to distribute binaries for multiple platforms. Multiarch does not solve this problem.
And as I've pointed above with fatelf it's easy to solve all the problems which multiarch is supposed to solve, too.
So... what exactly makes multiarch support so exciting? Modest space savings? In a world where $100 mobile phone includes gigabytes of storage? Meh...
