Oh yes, that’s something Nix(OS) supports: one can build for
i686-linux-gnu on x86_64-linux-gnu.  But it’s different from what’s
commonly referred to as “multilib support”.

So I don't understand what you meant by "bi-arch" support.

More precisely, what may not make sense in Nix is the /lib and /lib64 distinction _in the store_. But in an installed system, you could have /lib and /lib64 paths (or /lib and /lib32) for the user's consumption, just like in every other distribution.
