I can't get a hold of anyone on #ubuntu-devel who'll take responsibility for multipath-tools and the ubuntu-devel list is all moderated to an elite club of developers or something, so I've patched multipath-tools myself to work.

With multipath-tools=0.4.8-10ubuntu3~ppa1 from [1], multipath is now working as I expect it to:

# multipath -ll
sdb: checker msg is "directio checker reports path is down"
sdd: checker msg is "directio checker reports path is down"

There was also the issue of s/block/dev/. I'll leave that to the package maintainers to make a long term decision on.
