I'm not sure exactly what is problematic here.  I tested that I can
install winetricks (one of the reverse depends) with the current wine
"Multi-Arch: allowed" package before doing this upload.

Can you point to concrete bug reports in other packages caused by this
change?  Otherwise, I'm not sure exactly what you want us to do.

Best wishes,
