Ideally, you should write documentation for a specific release of
Slackware, not for a specific architecture.The deciding factor usually
is sofware versions and library compatibility.
But, I assume that people will want to write architecture-specific
articles (I know that I will for sure!) so I propose a different approach:

Instead of a tag like "slackware64_13.37", use two tags:
"slackware_13.37" and then "x86_64". We can then add the other
architectures too: "x86", "arm", "s390". That will make it _much_
easier to search for articles about ARM for instance.
