Since ia32-libs is in universe now, I think this is the way to go. 

We used to have complementary versions of ia32-libs, namely
'ia32-libs-gtk', 'ia32-libs-kde', ia32-libs-scim' and
'ia32-libs-sdl' see [1] for the full list. AFAIU, they all have been
merged to the ia32-libs package.

So if nobody else speaks up, I'd suggest you post a debdiff against the
ia32-libs package which adds the additional packages wine needs work
