I concur with James Cowgill in all points:
 * This is a bug in dpkg-cross if anything.
 * You should be explaining what problem you solve.

Last time Matthias merged a dpkg-cross patch of yours it broke the
mips64el cross toolchain. I suggest that you provide test build logs
well to avoid a similar disaster.

I propose that you use a dpkg-cross with your prospective patch to
convert the in-archive glibc packages and cross build some non-trivial
packages with that toolchain. Also checking coinstallability with the
original is something worth checking as mips* is prone to violating
