The suggestion is copied to this post for posterity.

Multi Puzzle — two (or more) puzzles in one

Create a single puzzle that has more than one valid solution, each arrived at in a completely different way.

e.g. Not a riddle that could have two potential solutions, but perhaps a riddle with a single solution, and another message hidden steganographically within the riddle.

Bonus points if the various answers to the puzzle combine somehow to either form a meta-answer or a final meta-puzzle.

This suggestion was inspired by the four Group 4 puzzles from the 2010 CISRA puzzle competition.
