"The biggest hurdle that FatELF is facing now are adoption pains"

No, the biggest problem is that this "solution" will require all of the development tools to be redesigned for dubious benefit.

FatELF: universal binaries for Linux

No more than separated debug info did. You build several times and then do
some sort of objcopy dance to merge the distinct binaries into FatELFs
(and probably automatically diff the rest to ensure it's identical before
zapping all but one copy of it).

Trivial, and only objcopy needs extension (as it has been, IIRC).
