Does that mean if I could get a rootfs working for aarch64 I may enable python support?

Yes, that's exactly what https://github.com/esteve/ros2_raspbian_tools does to cross compile ROS2 for the Raspberry Pi. The scripts in the repo fetch a Raspbian image and prepare a rootfs so that CMake will find all the dependencies and compile/link against them.

The scripts in https://github.com/esteve/ros2_raspbian_tools are generic enough that they can be adapted to cross-compile for aarch64, let me have a look at it and I'll flesh them out. What's your target aarch64 distribution? Ubuntu?
