We do use the EM_xxx number space but that isn't sufficient to
distinguish between 32-bit and 64-bit incarnations of certain machine
types (S390,SH,MIPS,...). I didn't much like adding it either, but
couldn't see a better option.

I pondered strings but we want to filter on this and don't want to have
to use strcmp. Got any better answers?

If it were just to point to the BK tree, that might help.
