As it is very questionable that amd64 will release with Sarge, I'm a bit
hesitant to do this, as amd64 would not be a "supported architecture" in
a rigorous sense.

People handing out the flyer would have to say "Note that amd64 is only
available at $FOO doing $BAR, not in the official release" for the next
two years. Explaining the situation in the flyer would take too much
space and would probably look unfavourable ("Uhm, we argued about
technical details for a long time, and then it was too late").
