Thank you for the quick processing.

That's hard to answer without more insight into those packages than I
have. In general, it is desirable to mark shared library packages, debug
packages and development packages Multi-Arch: same, but such a marking
is not always correct and an incorrect marking causes much harm.

I have 3 suggestions:
 * Try to follow https://wiki.debian.org/Multiarch/Implementation.
 * Upload those packages to Debian unstable (after stretch) and follow
   the "multiarch hinter" results on https://tracker.debian.org/<your
   source package>.
 * Upload those packages to Debian (e.g. experimental) and ask some
   multiarchy person (e.g. me) for help.
