As far as Red Hat is concerned, we make decisions like this based on 
customer feedback. If you are a customer, feel free to file a bug/RFE 
through your usual channels and follow the PR announcements regarding 
plans. However, we are not the only contributors, so other people may 
plan to do i686 versions.

I wrote a quick blog post about this some time back. I think this is 
still something we would like to see a better solution(s) for.
