There are 688 i386 packages in the x86_64 repo.  Add to that 1 i586 and 5 i686 
packages.  That's a lot of packages.  On a default x86_64 install into Xen, I 
have 356 i386 packages installed.  356 is a lot of packages to send down the 
wire, unpack, layout on the file system, set selinux stuff, and do whatever 
pre/post processing necessary.  Whats worse, a yum remove \*.i\?86 seems to 
want to take with it a fair number of x86_64 packages, which is not desired.
