I can give you a decided "it should". I've not tried it.

It does architecture comparisons and throws out the ones that don't
match on the client.

yum-arch just indexes and keys off of name.arch + epoch, ver, release

so it shouldn't have a problem but it's never been tested to do it.

give it a shot if you've got an non-x86 architecture to test on.

the rpm header doesn't care where it came from.
