/me feared that there will be questions "Is this for i586 and i686,
too?" But if others agree feel free to change.

Well, if others agree we can change that one also. But the Windows- and
Hardware-World uses x64 now and is quite popular.

And x86_64 is confusing, too: It's sometimes used as x86_64 (kernel and
rpm) or x86-64 (as used by AMD in the beginning; it slipped in to a lot
of other places). And does it mean ia32e (used in bugzilla), too? 
/me chooses not to mention the correct names "EM64T" and "AMD64"

Agreed, changed.
