Good question, unfortunately that is not banal, that is the reason 
why I haven't implemented it.

Well, in principle you have to:
- remove bin/$ARCH
- changes to tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb:
  . remove all stanzas
  . remove in 00texlive.installation $ARCH from 
	depend setting_available_architectures: ....
- (not essential) remove tlpkg/installer/xz/xz*.$ARCH

Can be done in tlmgr, but I was toooo lazy till now.

Best wishes
