Ignoring the severe technical problems that it would create (It'd
break _everything_ and be way too much work to implement), how about
.ia32.rpm for everything that is .i386 now and use i?86.rpm for stuff
that requires a specific cpu?

Too much work for just ending some FAQ's for no technical benefit, certainly ;)
