--force-* option should never be used in general, so the real fix is to
use multiarch, so yes put foreign-architecture i386 and either fix the dependent
package to set Multi-Arch: foreign if they are allowed fo fullfil foreign
dependencies or install the package of the corresponding architecture
to properly satisfy dependencies.

Unfortunately it's too late for natty to make any such changes.
