That makes sense - but was a surprise.  Let me see if I can get one of the companies I work with to contribute their simulator - not to be shipped, but to be tested against.  The simulator runs at 32bits, but the pkcs11 library that talks to the simulator has builds for win 32/64 linux 32/64 and Solaris.
