Well here's my peanuts on this bikeshed:

/usr/bin - binaries
/usr/sbin - static binaries
/usr/lib/<triplet> - architecture dependent binary libraries
/usr/lib/<triplet>/<pkg> - architecture dependent binary package libraries
/usr/sub/<triplet?>/<pkg> - gratuitous libexec renaming, short for 
subprocess sublibrary, etc
/usr/int/<arch> - arch dependent includes
/usr/share/int - arch independent includes
/usr/share/sub - arch independent sub...
/var/srv/<pkg> - package specific variable data such as apache, git, etc
/run - runtime data

I would have to look at debain multiarch more.
