I've heard that there were two ports, a pure and a mixed one. So,
which one is yours and how can it be "the" Debian AMD64 port?

I also thought that the pure AMD64 port is technically ok, but
worthless from a usability point of view since it is not compatible
with AMD64 ports of other distributions. If that's the case indeed,
and if you are talking about the pure amd64 port, I don't believe
Debian should include it in sid.
Given enough thrust pigs will fly, but it's not necessarily a good idea.
