Most likely AMD ain't impossible - but it may require some serious rewrite of a patch.
People have been booting the x86_64 Kernel in Snow Leopard, but I haven't ever seen it up and running. Furthermore the current Lion patch contains a lot of obsolete code changes that last from Voodoo XNU and even earlier - it would deserve some update anyway...
But I don't think I'd be able to do such a job.

I am running Mountain Lion on MBP and Xeon Workstation - very satisfied so far...
Nawcom released a Snow Leopard kernel. It can launch with 64 bit. I don't think AMD is impossible, but it will only support some AMD cpus.
It's difficult,not impossible.
