Not really, no. Nothing is stopping you from trying, though.

For the vast majority of stuff, not really, no, unless you're a Gentoo
ricer. Then it's 2 trillion times faster in your head alone.
Packages that benefit from subarchitecture optimizations tend to have
subarchitecture-specific packages already (for example, I have
mplayer-k7 and kernel-image-2.6.10-k7 installed; you can probably guess
my subarchitecture by the package name).
