I would agree with this.

As a user coming to the project, x64 is NOT the same arch as amd64, it
has a different name! Select one name for the arch, and use it
everywhere. Consistent naming is more important than having the name
absolutely technically correct.

And seeing as Gentoo uses amd64 for all those arches in the main tree
with minimal problems, I personally would vote for using amd64 in -alt
to retain consistency with the rest of Gentoo.

Just my 2 cents.
