One challenging project could be adding 64-bit instructions to Sparc, there are not too many of them. and the architecture was designed with scalability in mind. On the negative side, 32-bit Sparc system target is not functional yet and address space size could be a problem, as with any 64-bit CPUs.

PPC specs include both 32-bit and 64-bit implementations and the Qemu emulation works. The architecture is much more complex than Sparc, though. MIPS is one option with both 32 and 64-bit CPUs, but there isn't anything in Qemu side.
