I disagree.  I'm not sure what the algorithm is to select all-64
vs mixed-32-64 on 64 bit platforms, but I've got a datapoint that
disproves the generalization:  My Thinkpad laptop had a fresh 
install of RHEL6 and it was (sufficiently) 64-bit pure that I had
to later install lots of 32 bit libraries for some legacy applications.
IIRC, that included glibc.
