At least so it seems ...

Ok, here we go: -cDEFAULT sets DEFAULT as the (only) defined class, but your
package_config/DEFAULT has aptitude I386, which means that these packages will
only get installed if DEFAULT _and_ I386 are defined. So either drop the "I386"
from your package_config/DEFAULT, or just say

fai-mirror -v -cDEFAULT,I386 /faimirror

and everything should be fine.
