Is there any reason for that restriction?  As I understand it only the
BuildInstall stage must run on the architecture (and distro) it is
composing due to running anaconda tools.

Suggestions for alternatives?  The pungi features I like most are
  (1) easy way to select the packages (and groups!) I want to mirror.
  (2) the (global) package cache.

the package is especially useful when mirroring both i386 and x86_64
versions of a distro, as the i386 packages which are also part of the
x86_64 version don't get downloaded twice.  It also saves downloads when
creating a new repo where you have alot of the packages already on your
disk (happens if you track rawhide and some day create a f10 repo).

thanks,
  Gerd
