There is precedent for doing it both ways: IRIX 6.2 and later have
/usr/lib, /usr/lib32 and /usr/lib64 for the three supported ABIs (O32,
N32 and N64 respectively).

SuSE also ship biarch systems with separate 64-bit /usr/lib64 and 32-bit
/usr/lib, I believe Mandrake do too, and I believe Debian haven't worked
out how (or whether) to do biarch yet.
