At least the nightly test suite results for MIPSel range from around 20 
to around 60 failures which puts the target into a quite common area of 
other targets (the main targets like i386 often have less than 20 
failtures). Most packages might not have been tested with MIPSel though, 
so your melage may vary.
Basically I'd say that you should just give it a go and maybe report 
bugs if something fails :)
