Yum does list the architecture everywhere where relevant. Group lists
and group "dependencies" are the only place where arch doesn't even
exist, eg joe and vim-X11 are optional packages for that group no matter
what the architecture. Similaryly "foo-devel" requires "foo", the arch
is irrelevant.

The other part of the answer: yes, repoquery (from yum-utils) supports
--queryformat somewhat similarly to rpm queries.
