At the Wine level there's no specific requirement, it should support
either one package or two, that's really up to you and to the
packaging guidelines for the target platform. All Wine will need is to
know where the files are, so the loader and tools know where to find
the 32-bit libraries, and the 32-bit loader knows where to find the
64-bit wineserver.
