We need to identify here which of these packages we are shipping
because RHEL only ships them in 64bit. (A wiki page with an explicit
list of them would be great I think). 

Anyone with a 32bit instance around willing to check this list against
available 32bit packages for us?

Note that I don't think exclusivearch or excludearch comes in here. 
RHEL doesn't add that to their packages, they just do not ship the
32bit one. We cannot add it to our packages because when we ship one it
has to be available for both arches or koji will not be happy.

Might be nice/good to split these out by channel, so we could see
exactly which channels are publishing them?

Thanks for working on this!
