This is indeed a good question.

But this is beating a dead horse. The amd64 porters and the Debian CTTE 
decided the name of the port is amd64, period. 

Please stop with this discussion once and for all.

We need amd64 support in sarge, at least a minimal support like a 64bit
kernel and the possibility to run 64 bit binaries at all. 

It was not possible to add the pure64 port in time to sid so it could be
tested enough to become a release candidate, so please don't deny this
really minimal support, it's the indispensable minimum our users require
if they have an amd64 based system.
