I actually have a proposed matrix for testing the 'multi' images 
(there's multi-desktop as well as multi-arch) under review ATM, it got 
delayed somewhat due to the Alpha testing rush, but we'll try and get it 
done for Final.

We don't absolutely need to have multi ISOs for RC - we'd only need 
that if the plan is to release the multi ISOs simultaneously with the 
other ISOs. Another plan that'd work just as well is to do the release 
as normal and then build and test the multi ISOs just after, in the 
slack week before release or whatever.

BTW, Dennis - you don't need a DL burner and DL discs to use the 
multi-arch ISO, really...an 8GB (or maybe 16GB) USB stick will do just 
as well ;)
