This is reasonable. We had to go through the same type of thing when we
went to a 2.6 kernel.
IMO, a note on the webpage http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/read.html
and in the svn version of the book in the section "Host System
Requirements" really should be sufficient. The notes should also say
that x86_64 capability is planned for LFS 7.0.
The point of users not reading the intro pages should not be a problem.
When they ask for support, just point them to the appropriate page.
I just updated http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/download.html. See
if that page's note seems appropriate and I'll update read.html the same
