Yes, I did a 64bit installation into a chroot like that a couple of days ago, but using cdebootstrap, but otherwise like all the other steps described in the e-mail. I had to compile some packages for my own to get all dependencies met after the installation, but that is not a big problem, since most of the packages are building out of the box, and the two which did not just lacked a -lresolv at the link line (maybe a bug?).

cdebootstrap -a amd64 sid /chroot/sid-amd64/        \
