 You can but that will break x86_64, because i386 will need i386
packages that x86_64 must not have as multilib.
 As Seth said, you can have one giant directory of packages and just
different repodata pointing to subsets.
 As Jesse said you could also use hardlinks/symlinks in the x86_64 repo.
 Or you could even create three repos. i386, x86_64 and i386-common (not
that I think that will be better than the other two options).
