Yes but ..

The practical matter is that you do need repository pointers to both x86_64 
and i386 respositories in the general case.  Updates for the gcc, glibc, 
XFree86, etc. packages which include both x86_64 and ix86 packages in the FC1 
x86_64 distribution will require both sets of repositories.

Hopefully, FC1 x86_64 final will be coming out shortly and that should fix a 
lot of this stuff.
