That's just a package management tooling problem.
If you use yum, or PackageKit, life is improved because you only have
to install *1* package per architecture you want:
yum install qemu-system-x86
which pulls in all the other bits via dependancies. No one is seriously
expecting people to go around doing 'rpm -ivh ' on individual RPMs anymore
as its just a complete waste of time
