So would this mean one disk with two "repositories" on it, or is
mashed together all in one repository?

it'd be easy to have two sets of repodata in two different dirs pointing
to the same set of pkgs.

Two repos, but with hardlinks.

I doubt ISO9660 can deal with hardlinks, but I have to admit I've never
really tried (I did try once and gave up pretty quickly I recall).

It handles it just fine. We keep certain kernel files hardlinked on the DVDs when they are in different directories for different purposes.

Also, the way I understand this works, you can just include x86_64
packages in the one repository...

When the system boots 32-bit (kernel, userland, etc, using syslinux
3.72+ ifcpu64.c32 which I have not yet been able to get to work yet) the
x86_64 packages won't show up in the available packages, 'cause of how
YUM does something with a list of compatArchs, right?

The problem is when you boot 64bit. Not every 32bit package is suitable for multilib.
